Gibson welcomes cashback for Lybster Junior FC

News release
Immediate release

A junior football club in Caithness is to receive new changing and storage facilities thanks to a Scottish Government scheme.

Lybster Junior FC has secured £25,000 from the cashback communities scheme which sees profits confiscated from criminals redistributed to young people's organisations.

Commenting on the award Highlands and Islands SNP MSP Rob Gibson said…..

"Playing sports gives a positive outlet for youngsters that is why the support of the Scottish Government for Lybster Junior FC is so important. The vast majority of young people play a vital role in their communities and it is only a minority who fall by the way side. However if there are attractive activities and facilities available to them then the likihood of straying into disorder is diminished."

"The cashback from criminals scheme takes money from those that do ill in our society such as drug dealers and adds something positive which enriches the lives of youngsters."
