Spartans Community Football Academy

At our recent Spartans Academy fund raising dinner we showed for the first time a new film which showcases the work we do at our charity and how it changes lives.

Working with the Edinburgh based company Filming Scotland over several weeks, we were delighted with the impact the film had on over 460 guests.  Graeme Souness was on stage just after the film was shown and became very emotional as he described how he was helped by football, and his Middlesbrough manager Jack Charlton in particular, to make the right choices to become the best he could be.

Chairman Craig Graham is delighted with the film.  “The film captures precisely what we are all about.  The team at Filming Scotland were brilliant to work with and it really does show how sport, and in our case football especially, can have such a positive influence.  I hope everyone enjoys watching the film as much as we did making it.”
