Record-breakers!

The World Record for the longest ever non-stop game of 5-a-side football was claimed last weekend.

Representatives from a number of Boys’ Brigade companies, including our own 1st Cumbernauld Company, played continuously from 10pm on Thursday 11th to 9am on Sunday 14th September at Broadwood Stadium – with permitted breaks, a total of 55 hours, beating the previous record by two hours. All the documentation now has to be ratified by Guinness World Records, but we hope our record will soon be an ‘official’ one.

Under the title ‘Engage a Generation – the Seven Summit Challenge’ (shorted to Engage 7 Summits) this was an astonishing feat of both organisation and stamina and involved not just the 16 players but many support staff. Congratulations are due to everyone involved; it was truly an amazing effort.

Find out more on the Engage 7 Summits Facebook page – and, yes, donations would be most welcome!
