Yesterday I was out and about taking pics at events around Inverurie. Different parts of the town were buzzing with a variety of events from the river raft race to the town hall jazz festival finale. For me however I had the privilege of capturing a picture from a very high step ladder of the boys, girls and coaches of Colony Park FC. As probably the biggest club in the North East they offer football to all ages and all abilities and it was great to see them parade through the town behind Kintore Pipe Band as they made their way to their Annual Presentation Night at the Town Hall. Unlike many clubs they don't hand out trophies to everyone - only those who have the support of their fellow players and admiration of their coaches, win awards. As a club their focus is on providing football to as many youngsters as they can and from time to time they win Leagues, Cups and Tournaments. Every competitive level Colony team sets out to win and they don't fold teams simply because they are bottom of the league or win no trophies. Its the love of football, not the love of winning, that makes this club special
But every player walks away from the presentation event with a vital prize - next seasons training t-shirt and the knowledge they are part of a truly great club.
