With clubs, school visits etc going on at the Club we have taken the decision to issue "The Week Ahead" bulletin to keep fans up-to-date of what's going on at the Club. So here's what's happening this week:-
MONDAY - 13th Feb
Walking Football – An opportunity at the Queen of the South Arena for the over 50’s to keep fit and active by taking part in the Club’s walking football programme.

Pound to Play - later in the day at the Queen of the South Football Academy at the King George the Fifth Park, kids have the chance to play football. For not much more than the cost of a standard bar of chocolate they can play under the watchful eye of our Community coaches when they’ll be on site to provide an hour’s programme between four o’clock and five for just a pound.
