Monday Marvels Visit First Team

The ‘St Mirren Monday Marvels’ paid a visit to the first team training session this morning at the Carbrini@JD Airdome.

The ‘Monday Marvels’ players chatted with their heroes and some of them even joined in the training session.

Football Development Officer, Ross Paterson said of the visit: “The Marvels players had a fantastic experience watching the first team players go through their paces at training and they also got to meet, chat and get their pictures taken with the players, Danny Lennon and Tommy Craig.

“Danny even subbed two of the Marvels on for the last 5 minutes of the training session, they were in shock! One of the players, big Stuart, even scored against Chris Dilo – it was fantastic stuff and a great experience for the Marvels.”

The ‘St Mirren Monday Marvels’ are a group of participants who are coached by St Mirren’s Football Development Officer, Ross Paterson every Monday morning at the Carbrini@JD Airdome.

St Mirren Football Club work in partnership with Community Networks which is part of Renfrewshire Learning Disability Services to provide the participants with opportunities to participate in football related activity in addition to match visits and stadium tours.
