THE memory of a community legend in Cardenden was remembered and celebrated with a third children's football tournament in his honour.

Pupils from Cardenden, St Ninian's, Denend and Kinglassie primary schools descended on Wallsgreen Park to compete for the Willie Duncan Memorial Trophy.

Held for the third time, it is played for following the passing of Willie, who served on Cardenden Community Council, the Community Bonfire Committee, the Bowhill Village Fair Committee and the John Thomson football tournament organising committee.

The school kids produced some fine football, watched on by a good gathering of onlookers, and it was Kinglassie who emerged as the winners, following a 2-1 win over Denend in a tense final.

Alex Burns, chairman of the organising committee, praised the standard of the players that took part, and commented: "I would like to thank all the children who took part, along with the teachers who accompanied them.

"It was also excellent to see local councillors, Linda Erskine, Rosemary Liewald and Mary Lockhart play their part in a grand day, and an honour to see former MP for the area, Lindsay Roy, who worked with Willie Duncan and myself on a number of community issues, take part in the event.

"We were very fortunate to have local police inspector, James McGuinness, as our referee and he did an excellent job."

Alex also thanked the first aid team, who were on duty throughout the tournament, and also his daughter Amanda and granddaughter, Kayleigh, for their catering during the morning, as well as Simon Warren, of Fife Active Schools, for his input.
