The Thistle Colts are the local football team for children in the Smithton area. The Thistle Colts are coached by a number of dedicated parents, and they play games regularly against other local teams. Mr West and Mr Hardie also run an after-school football club to give pupils a further opportunity to enjoy football.
The aim of the club is to give all pupils, regardless of ability, the opportunity to develop their basic footballing skills and at the same time promote a positive attitude towards sport. During each session, pupils get the chance to develop their skills through a variety of drills and activities, and will go on to play a game to help them put their skills into practice.
