Brechin’s first ever Sports Club Festival took place at Brechin Leisure Centre last Monday afternoon.

A total of 100 primary five pupils from across Brechin gathered at the festival, each getting the chance to experience some of the skills and training that would normally happen at the clubs training sessions.

The four clubs in attendance on the afternoon were Brechin City Youths, Brechin Junior Rugby Club, Brechin Monarchs/Thistles Hockey Club and Gordon Linton’s Brechin Taekwondo School.

All pupils thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Kelly Moonlight, Active Schools Co-ordinator for Brechin said: “It’s a great opportunity for pupils to experience the sport and get a taste of what the club is going to be about and meet some people from the clubs too.

“That way if they are interested in going down to join the club – it’s a little less daunting and they’ll see a familiar face.
