AVID Cowdenbeath fan Ross Cunningham is attempting a continous "keepie-uppie" challenge for charity.

The senior communications officer for MP Douglas Chapman wants to raise more than £500 for the SSPCA (Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) by attempting to do a continuous “keepie-uppie” around the pitch of a number of Scottish football clubs over the space of 48 hours at the end of August.

A “keepie-uppie” is the skill of juggling a football ball using feet, lower legs, knees, chest, shoulders, and head, without allowing the ball to hit the ground.

Ross, who has not only supported the Blue Brazil, but videod games for Cowden managers, will attempt to do a “keepie-uppie” around the permitter of 10 football parks, starting off at East End Park (home of Dunfermline Athletic FC), and then Central Park plus eight others.

Ross Cunningham said: “Animal welfare has always been something very close to my heart so I thought this would be a challenging but fun way to raise money to help the Scottish SPCA continue their great work across Scotland. They are a fantastic charity who are completely reliant on donations from the public.

“I was inspired by Stuart McMillan MSP who last year played the bagpipes around every Scottish senior football ground to raise money for charity and I thought I could do something along the same lines but involving keepie-uppies. I’d like to thank Douglas for his support in helping me promote this challenge."

Douglas Chapman, MP for Dunfermline and West Fife commenting, said: “I wish Ross all the best in hitting his target of £500 and would encourage everyone to donate what they can to a very worthwhile cause.”
