Ardencaple’s penalty challenge for Red Nose Day

A bid to break the world record for consecutive penalty kicks is being staged in Helensburgh next weekend.

Ardencaple FC is aiming for a target of 1968 – the year the club was founded.

Anyone who would like to join in and take a penalty, earning a place in the Guinness Book of Records, will be welcome at the Lomond School Sports Hall on Rhu Road Higher between 9am and 5pm next Sunday (March 8).

Celebrities including Walter Smith and Murdo MacLeod are expected at the event, which will be raising funds for Comic Relief.

Sponsorship forms can be collected in advance or on the day – for more information contact Richard West on 01436 842988 or
