MINI Messis strutted their stuff on the pitch at Notre Dame High in Greenock as fun holiday football camps kicked off.

Youngsters of all ages honed their skills at the sessions with help from Morton in the Community's coaching team.

There was plenty of fun and games in the micro section with Shaun MacDonald and the two to four year-olds.

Shaun told the Telegraph: "The micro camp has been fully booked this week and the mini camp is also nearly full.

"It gives the kids the opportunity to play football with their friends and there is also the social aspect away from school.

"The camps are popular because all the kids know me and my colleague Paddy McAlees."

Shaun says he has definitely spotted some promise in the youngsters.

He said: "We have some talented players here and it gives them a chance to show their skills.

"It's great to see their confidence growing over the week, some kids are so quiet when they come in and by the end they have come out of their shell.

"It's also important for them to keep active."

Roselyn Dunlop took her three grandsons along to the Ton training sessions.

Connor and Declan Dunlop, aged three and four, and Adam McElwee, also three, were having a ball.

Roselyn of Cairncurran Court in Greenock, said: "The camps are great, the boys know them all from nursery and school.

"It keeps the boys busy during their school holiday and they always have a great time."

Popular Ton trust coach Paddy told the Tele: "It's been terrific.

"We have different sections, the two to four, three to fives, five to seven and eight and above.

"Many of the boys in our 'elite squad' have been coming here since they were two.

"The team have been learning skills individually and as a team."
