Ravenscraig sports centre is to be the venue for a special Caden Beggan Festival of Football for 900 youngsters on Saturday.

The event is being staged by Mill United 2005 FC in memory of Ladywell Primary pupil Caden (pictured), who tragically died aged six in November last year from the blood infection meningococcal septicaemia.

The Yorkhill hospital launched the Caden Beggan Memorial Fund to raise £40,000 towards the cost of the advanced life support equipment used in such cases.

Now Mill United 2005 FC will contribute half of the money raised from the Festival, which is set to run throughout the day on Saturday, from 8.45am till 5pm.
