One Town, One Team

George and Stacey at HampdenEveryone will know how delighted I was with the Semi-final result yesterday.  So much so I lodged this parliamentary motion congratulating our team, Paisley’s team – The Saints.

Title: One Town, One Team

Motion Text:

That the Parliament congratulates St Mirren FC on reaching the final of the Scottish Communities League Cup; recognises everyone involved with the club in achieving this, including the 5,000 fans who made the trip to Hampden to cheer the Saints to victory; acknowledges what it sees as the special place that St Mirren has in Paisley’s community; notes the club’s Street Stuff Project, which aims to reduce youth disorder by bringing football and coaching to young people across Renfrewshire and offering facilities for unemployed people to find work; believes that reaching the final is just reward for the club, which has won the Scottish Premier League Family Champions award for the last two years, and wishes the team every success in the final.
