After a gap of several years, the popular Saints in the Community Quiz is being resurrected! Teams of 4 are invited to come along to McDiarmid Park on Thursday 23rd February at 7pm for 7.30pm. The Saints Quiz is known for being great fun and never too serious (the bar will be open!). An entry fee of £20 per team will be charged and a raffle will be held. Raffle Prize donations will be gratefully accepted with all proceeds going to the St Johnstone Community Trust. If you would like to take part please email:


A new Fit Fans course for women will begin on Thursday 16th February. The block of 13 weeks will take place every Thursday from 6.30pm - 8pm in the Muirton Suite at McDiarmid Park and is suitable for all women, especially those who would benefit from a fitter, healthier, more active lifestyle. With funding from the Scottish Government and the SPFL Trust, the course is FREE. Participants will cover topics such as weight management, diet and heathy eating as well as taking part in light physical exercise. Get in touch for more information and to book a place.


Our new exciting regular Community Football Programme: SAINTS KIDZ begins again on Saturday 18th February (with a 2-day Holiday Course before that on Thurs 16 and Fri 17). The most significant change to our programme will be the introduction of sessions for preschool 3 – 5 year olds … MINI KIDZ! Full details are available on our web site and a launch will take place in coming weeks.


Walking Football continues every Thursday from 7pm – 8pm. This fast-growing activity aims to keep men and women aged over 50 involved with football when, due to a lack of fitness, mobility or for other reasons, they are not able to play the traditional game. Come along to the Field Turf pitch at McDiarmid and you will be made very welcome. There is no need to pre-book - just come along, pay £3 and have a laugh while you keep fit.
