GOALKEEPERS TRIP TO NEWCASTLE GOALKEEPER ACADEMY TRAINING TRIP
The goalkeepers had an excellent day out on the 6th May 2012 when they travelled down to Newcastle to train at the Newcastle United training ground. It was an early start for the players who left Dumfries at 6:30 am to travel to Newcastle for a 9am start. The boys were put through their paces by goalkeeping coach Steven Graham who provided a 2 hour training session.
After the training the boys headed across the city to St James Park where they watched the game against Manchester City. Ruaridh Wallace was fortunate to assist as a ballboy at the ground and was able to watch the players at close range as they warmed up and played the match.

Cammy, who currently plays for Kilmarnock and recently appeared for Scotland against the Faroe Islands to earn his first cap. Cammy is now a regular within the Scotland team and the players were keen to learn from his knowledge and experience.
The players, coaches and committee would like to thank Cammy for taken time out of his busy schedule to support the club.
