TOTS combined goals with ghouls as they enjoyed a fabulous Halloween football party.

There were some funny looking footballers as youngsters at Gibshill Children's Centre took part in a beat the goalkeeper sponsored event to raise funds for Christmas activities.

Paddy McAlees, Morton in the Community coach, was at the heart of the footy fun along with colleague Shaun MacDonald and club mascot Cappie The Cat.

It all coincided with the centre's Halloween party so there were lots of superheroes, witches and princesses taking part in the beautiful game.

Craig Scott depute head of centre said: "Sixty children participated and up to 70 parents came along to support the event.

"The reason for doing it was to collect funds for the nursery's Christmas activities.

"It was nice that it coincided with our Halloween party.

"Paddy used Halloween themes, taking the children on an adventure and talking about Halloween characters.

"All the kids relate so well to him, he has such a presence."

Craig says mums and dads went the extra mile to create outstanding outfits for their kids.

He said: "The costumes were great.

"A lot of effort from children and their parents went into them and we had Spiderman and Spidergirl, Buzz Lightyear, superheroes, unicorns and witches.

"It was great fun.

"We are a community based nursery and this was an opportunity for parents and carers to join in."
