MORTON fans had a party off the park - to celebrate five years of the club's community trust.

The Morton Community Trust kickstarted their fifth birthday celebrations with a whole host of events taking place on match day.

It all kicked off with youngsters taking turns to get a penalty past club mascot Cappie the Cat.

Trust development manager Brian McLaughlin said: "It was a great chance to get the fans involved. We share a badge and it is important that we all get the chance to celebrate the work that goes on.

"It was a brilliant day from start to finish. We have come a long way and it is incredible to think where we are now."

As well as the family fun activities, fans also go the chance to find out more about what the community trust offers while the Ton team wore a special one-off strip to mark the milestone.

Around 60 youngsters signed up to the Ton trust took to the park at half time for a game to show off their skills.

Morton Community Trust now works with 1,400 people every single week, from aged 18 months to over 80.

The community coaching team offer opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to play football.

But now Cappielow has branched out into a community headquarters for health, employability and education.

The trust team help out in nursing homes, run holiday clubs and have a hockey club under the Morton banner.
