Thousands of young footballers will come together across Scotland tomorrow to celebrate the first ever UEFA Grassroots Day.

Football events are running across the country with help and support from professional players and managers, including Rangers captain David Weir, who will join 200 boys and girls at Toryglen Regional Football Centre in Glasgow for a National Disability Football Festival.

Events are also taking place throughout the week in Bonnyrigg, Stirling, Dundee, Ayr, Aberdeenshire and Paisley.

This first ever UEFA Grassroots Day is part of the build-up to European football's main event, the Champions League Final, which takes place this Saturday in Madrid.

All 53 UEFA member associations are taking part in the celebrations, which aim to promote the work going on at grassroots level across the continent.
