Ian Younger Sixes 2019

This will be our 25th Ian Younger Sixes, and 33rd tournament altogether, after the trophy was named after our late, great patron who passed away in September 1994.

The first Ian Younger Sixes in 1995 were won in dramatic fashion by Queen’s Park with Sir Stevie McGilp scoring the winning goal in the Final at Crownpoint Sports Centre with the last kick of the game against Broadwood Clyde to make it 3-2.

This year, Friday night will be the traditonal pre tournament karaoke at Cosmopol in Glasgow city centre from 8pm. As usual, all teams are welcome.

The Sixes itself will kick off at 12pm on Saturday and before the football starts there will be a minute’s silence in memory of our former player and close friend Martin Kelly who passed away on 1st June 2013.

There will also be a collection on the day for Epilepsy Scotland, the charity we regularly contribute to in Martin’s memory. All donations, no matter how big or small, will be greatly appreciated.

The bar at Giffnock North will be open from 11am until late throughout the day and evening and there will be a barbeque open throughout the day for players/spectators.

Presentations will take place in the Giffnock North Social Club at the conclusion of the tournament, to be followed by the Champions League Final on the big screen and a football quiz (free round for the winning team). There will also be food provided.

It would be great if as many teams could join us for the evening as to add to the event!

The weather doesn’t look great for the weekend but it has never dampened the enjoyment at the Sixes before so we’re all set for another memorable day!
