    Alloa Athletic Healthy Living Initiative

    Alloa Athletic have teamed up with local Primary schools throughout Clackmannanshire to promote healthy living.

    In class the kids have been working on healthy living booklets and learning about food, nutrition and the importance of excercise. Chris Townsley kindly helped out by providing a food and excersise diary showing what he has to do in a week to prepare for football training and games.

    Each school who has taken part was then invited along to the Recreation Park for a tour of the stadium and a talk about what goes on behind the scenes, finishing their visit with a quiz and a 30 minute coaching session.

    The first week ran from 2/3/09 - 6/3/09 the schools who took part were PSSS, Coalsnaughton, Menstrie and Deerpark.

    On Monday Doyle from PSSS said "I liked the training, I could play football. It was exciting and i really enjoyed it"
