Elgin Sports Community Trust has set up a new academy, aimed primarily for children and young people who are not involved in football clubs because of a lack of confidence, ability or access.

Robbie Hope, operations director for the trust, is behind the launch of the academy at the Gleaner Arena in Elgin.

Darren Margach, owner of Pinz ten pin bowling and entertainment complex, has agreed to sponsor achievement awards for the children.

That will include monthly recognition awards and end of year development awards.

Along with the football sessions, the academy will include monthly achievement awards and an end of year recognition ceremony thanks to a local business, Pinz Bowling Elgin.

Robbie Hope said: "We really appreciate the support from Pinz, who have kindly sponsored the awards and will host our end of year event.

"We want to give the children a really positive experience, and help them grow in confidence."
