THE final countdown is on to a charity football match in Catrine this weekend in aid of an Ayrshire-based men’s mental health charity.

Catrine Amateurs will take on Auchinleck Talbot’s U20s at Riverside Park in the village this Sunday, July 16.

The charity game is in aid of the Release Ayrshire charity, which supports men in the area who are struggling with their mental health.

Sunday’s match is the climax of a day of football which will also feature a match involving Auchinleck’s 2015 and 2017 teams.

Release will have a stall set up on the day, with any money raised from the day going towards helping the charity.

In addition to the football, there will also be a raffle at the match, with the winning tickets being drawn after the Catrine v Talbot match, with prizes including a £150 tattoo voucher, a £60 voucher for laser tattoo removal, and a £50 piercing voucher, all donated by Ayr-based firm Scotland Ink.

Catrine club secretary Suzanne Wise, who volunteered with the club after its matches helped her husband Stephen on his road to recovery, said: “We know as a couple what it’s like to see a man struggling, so if the day can even help one person then it will have done its job.”

The kids’ match gets under way at around 10.45am, with the Catrine and Talbot fixture kicking off at 2pm.
