Young players and volunteers from Aberdeen Football Club's Youth Development Programme will be at Asda, Bridge of Dee on Saturday 18th December to raise funds for the youth development programme's Easter and Summer tours.

Earlier this year, the U13s were on a Tour of England, competing against Arsenal, Chelsea, West Ham Utd and Leeds Utd and the U12s competed in the Shell Foyle Cup in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. We hope to send more teams to quality tournaments again in 2005.

There is no doubt that these trips contribute significantly to the development of young players and they are fantastic opportunities for them to pit their skills against some of the most exciting and promising talent in the UK and beyond.

Bag-packing is just one of a number of activities we have organised to raise funds for our youth programme. Last year the Programme secured a two-year match kit sponsorship deal with Cansco and we also had a very successful fundraising dinner, sponsored walks and individual player sponsorships. Every penny raised has been channelled directly back into the Youth Development Programme.

The young players will be bag-packing at the store from 9am to 1pm and hopefully they will receive a positive response from the Aberdeen public.
