Scottish Amateur Football News has been with him most of the way and now we can confirm Kelvindale Amateurs full back David Hamilton has completed his 5km- 51 Consecutive Day Double Charity Challenge raising money for ENABLE SCOTLAND and Time to Tackle.
He revealed today “There has been an outstanding response, and the final amount raised was £1227 – One Thousand over my initial goal of £200!”
“Thanks for all the encouragement and of course the donations. The winner of the signed Barcelona strip was SHONA BENNETT..”
RUN ALL OVER…. David Hamilton has completed his 51-day Charity Challenge.
Here is another string to the bow of Kelvindale Amateurs full back David Hamilton – from Charity Runner to Writing Verse! Today he revealed “My son has not long turned 1 year-old, so I pitched it to my Wife that it was for him. No pun intended lol.”
“The inspiration for the idea came from a Support Group I am part of. The chat always seems to sway towards Food the majority of the time, so I thought I would try and combine the two.”
“I wrote this piece the other night. I was wondering what you and the Scottish Amateur Football News Readers make of it?”
“The 200 Degrees angle is the GO-TO-SETTING on the Oven, so I thought it would be appropriate.”
I turn the dial to 200 degrees. Giving time to the expectation of what is about to happen. The gradual rise of all the ingredients starting to sizzle away.
These begin to motor along and are looking crisp and sharp. I get too cocky and take my eye off the ball.
That time slipped away and suddenly it’s peaked. The darkness begins to take a hold and at that moment it starts to burn.
Crumbs are all that is left. Fragments of what once was. In need to start over.
The ovens cold, I can’t eat, nothing is going to rise in that state. No expectations.
I’m shaking and I can’t turn the dial myself. I need to turn the dial to feed my survival.
That moment eventually comes. Back on my feet. 200 degrees and we are cooking again.
David Hamilton is nearing completion of his 51 Consecutive Days Challenge raising cash for Time to Tackle and ENABLE SCOTLAND.
Kelvindale Amateurs full back David Hamilton has shown he still has the enthusiasm for a game of football – even although his priority in the run-up to Christmas is completing 51 consecutive days of running 5 km to raise money for ENABLE SCOTLAND and Time to Tackle.
Friday marked Day 46 of the Campaign, and David recorded another run just under the 25-minute mark.
He proudly added ” Only 5 left of this campaign”.

Scottish Amateur Football can be proud of another tremendous achievement in a year dominated by Covid-19 and it comes in the shape of great involvement with the GDSFC.
Today League Secretary Nim Roy revealed “Just to let you know we have our final gifts all bagged up and on their way to Glasgow Spirit of Christmas, and to forever homes with the children – we have managed to make up an amazing 100 GIFT BAGS!!!”
“We are absolutely delighted with collections again this year, with us surpassing last years total (50), but what makes it more phenomenal is we totally understand how much of a challenging year it has been for everyone, and certainly at this time of year also, but for the GDSFC Community to come together and donate so much.”
“It really is phenomenal and this Charity in particular as it’s all about the children and giving them that magical Christmas. It makes me so proud to be a part of this League, GDSFC is the place where kindness matters and well and truly have Charity at heart of everything we do.”
“I would like to say a massive thank- you to the following teams for their support with Glasgow Spirit of Christmas collections – Atlantic Quay, Glasgow Irish, Kelvindale AFC, Pollokshields United, Strathclyde United and Woodlands FC, without them this would not have been possible.”
“We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, and hope everyone stays safe and well. Hopefully, see you all soon at a GDSFC match in 2021.”
