TWO young boys received a ride in a trishaw to watch Alloa Athletic, as a reward for their outstanding work picking up litter across Clackmannan.

The boys, called Lucas and Kai, were awarded Citizens of the Month by the Clackmannan Development Trust for their roles in a litter picking project they undertook with a larger group who weren’t all able to make it.

For their reward, they were given a ride in a trishaw, a light three-wheeled vehicle with pedals, driving all the way to the Indodrill Stadium to watch Alloa Athletic take on Cove Rangers.

On arrival, they were greeted by Wasps manager Andy Graham and got to meet and take photos with some of the players including Taylor Steven and goalkeeper PJ Morrison.

A spokesperson for the CDT said: “Huge thanks to Alex Brown, Andy Graham and everyone at Alloa Athletic FC for their help and support to arrange this fitting reward for the boys’ hard work.

“Not all of the group were able to attend, rearranged due to the terrible weather in December, but it’s safe to say Lucas and Kai had a brilliant time meeting manager, players and enjoying the game.”

The pair were treated to a great game as Alloa thumped Cove Rangers 4-1, with goals coming from Taylor Steven, Scott Taggart and Bobby Wales.

Lucas’ mum Heather added: “I can’t thank everyone enough for the opportunity for them and I can’t wait to hear all about the trip.”
