American football

20th April 2001 at 01:00
The Scottish Claymores have joined forces with Glasgow education services in a bid to find American football fans among local schoolchildren.

In an initiative the team say is worth more than pound;100,000, books and sporting equipment will be donated to pupils in primary, secondary and special education, and every schoolchild in the city will be offered one parent and pupil match ticket free to attend one of this season's games. The Claymores are also donating sports books to schools and city libraries as part of their Read to Succeed camaign.

Glasgow Lord Provost Alex Mosson says: "Providing sport for all is a core element to Glasgow's sporting and educational activities and, through their various programmes, the Claymores are committed to developing their sport for everyone in Glasgow.

"Every pupil is being invited to attend and all they have to do to claim their match voucher is to see the teacher responsible for administering the scheme at their own school."

The Claymores open their season against Frankfurt Galaxy at Hampden Park on April 21.
