Through the generosity of Falkirk Round Table, 3rd Falkirk (Peoples’ Church) Junior Section received new sports strips, as seen in last week’s Herald.
When boys saw them they were delighted and say a big thank you to the Table.
Three seniors from the company, Grant, Regan and Keir, have completed their Sports Leadership Course. This can be added to their record books; another step en route to their Queen’s Badges.
Dundee was one venue for the first round of the BB national five-a-side Competition on November 30. The 6/8th Dundee, 25th Stirling and 1st Monifieth took part along with teams from 3rd Falkirk and 2nd Larbert (Old Church). After some close results the team from 3rd Falkirk finished second in that league and progressed to the next round. Their boys were also in action in the national table tennis competition, defeating 1st Falkirk (Grahamston United Church) and again moving to round two. Also progressing is 1st Grangemouth (Abbotsgrange Church) who beat 25th Stirling.
Dave Wilson, skipper of 1st Grangemouth, tells me three of his company section boys were ‘treading the boards’ in the pantomime run by the Portonians. Oh yes, they were!
The Battalion event planned for seniors and young officers took place on November 23 at Rebellion paint-balling in Falkirk and participants enjoyed a night of competition and fun (if you call stalking, firing on and generally terrorising one another fun!). This is a new venture for the battalion and no doubt when they recover their various views will ‘colour’ thoughts on future plans.
