The third annual Calum Reid Charity football match ended in an entertaining 1-1 draw as a Calum Reid XI and amateur side Elgin Star shared the Memorial Shield and again raised hundreds of pounds for Support in Mind Scotland.

The same two sides contested the shield at Pitreavie in 2018, with the Calum Reid XI winning on that occasion. The 2019 match was again watched by a bumper crowd, this time at Dalgety Bay Leisure Centre, and they were treated to another keenly fought match, as the two sides traded first half goals and finished the match all square. Gavin Westwood was the scorer for the CR XI and Liam Queen netted for Elgin.

There were a couple of special guests on the team-sheets - former Dunfermline Athletic stars Scott 'Nipper' Thomson and Gary Mason turning out for the Calum Reid XI and Elgin respectively.

The match is organised annually to raise mental health awareness and to remember young Dunfermline man Calum Reid, who tragically passed away at the age of 21 in 2017. Friday night's match was another fitting tribute to Calum's memory and his friends, family and the wider community can again be very proud of the event.

Before the match there was a minute's silence for Mark Fyfe, who passed away last week, followed by a minute's applause for Calum.

At the end of the match Calum's Mum Laura - a winner in the 2019 Charity of the Year awards for her work in establishing the match - and Calum's sister Heather, presented medals to both teams and then the shield to the two captains.

Huge thanks to the crowd for their support of the match and the raffle, which had raised another substantial amount for Support in Mind Scotland and the mental health services the charity provides. Thanks are also due to Lourenzos of Dunfermline for sponsoring the match kits and all who donated raffle prizes.
