As the new season gets underway, Ross County FC are taking on a new community challenge that will see the club get to the heart of Highland communities. Under the leadership of Sporting Director, Scott Boyd, the Staggies will take on “Rossco’s Route 400” travelling over 400 miles to venues across the Highlands to meet our communities.
The RR400 will begin next Thursday 8th Aug, in Portree before visiting a host of other towns and villages between now and Christmas including Lairg, Thurso, Tain, Forres and Kingussie. On the visits the club will host a one-hour free coaching session for kids aged 5-12 years old, followed by a meet and greet with one of our 1st team players. During the visits there will be exclusive giveaway treats for children and the chance to learn more about Ross County.
Speaking on the tour across the North, Sporting Director Scott Boyd said “It’s a great opportunity for us to get out to the communities and learn more about what is and isn’t available and how we can help to work with these communities going forward. Part of my remit in being brought back to the club was to help engage with people across the Highlands and this will be a great way to meet people and hear their thoughts in a relatively short timescale. Everybody knows that Ross County are a community club but we really have to look at ways of pushing that to the next level and this will give us the opportunity to learn some of the challenges out there and how we can maybe help to overcome them.”
