World Record confirmed!

Last week, we received word that The Boys’ Brigade in Scotland had been confirmed as the Official Guinness World Record Holders for the longest-ever continuous game of five-a-side football.

A team of Boys’ Brigade members and leaders, many from our own 1st Cumbernauld Company, set the record at Broadwood Stadium last September, playing continuously for 55 hours, although it has taken until now for all the paperwork and other evidence to be checked and the record to be formally ratified.

What an achievement! A HUGE well done to everyone who took part – record-breakers one and all.

World Record Attempt

An attempt at the World Record for the longest ever non-stop game of 5-a-side football will be made from 9pm on Thursday 11th September to 6pm on Sunday 14th September at Broadwood Stadium, Cumbernauld.

Featuring representatives from a number of local Boys’ Brigade companies, but mostly from our own 1st Cumbernauld Company, this is a charity event in aid of Boys’ Brigade funds. We hope that members of BB companies and churches in Cumbernauld, and as many other people as possible, will drop by and offer their support to the young men attempting this incredible challenge. Find out more on the event’s Facebook page – and, yes, donations will be most welcome!
