Nithsdale Wanderers Ladies took on Kelloholm Legends in a charity match at Ash Park, Hillview Kelloholm last week.

The match marked the start of Kirkconnell and Kelloholm Children’s Gala (KKCG).

The game ended in a 1-1 draw and each player on both teams received a medal marking their participation from Gala Queen, Gabrielle Finlay.

A KKCG spokesperson said: “The gala committee would like to thank Kelloholm Legends football team and Nithsdale Wanderers Ladies F.C. for kicking off Gala Week.”

Tickets are on sale now (priced £20 per person) for the gala’s dinner dance, taking place at the Miners Memorial Centre on Saturday, June 18 from 6.30pm until midnight and including a three course meal and live musical entertainment.
