Motion text

That this House congratulates Celtic Boys Club, their chairman, Tony McGuiness, the club manager, Jim Torbett, the backroom staff and all the under-15 players on their triumphant tour of the occupied Palestine territories of the West Bank and East Jerusalem; notes that the tour was born of the town twinning between the City of Glasgow and the Holy City of Bethlehem and that thousands turned out to clap and cheer the boys on the streets, in restaurants and not least at the makeshift stadium where Celtic Boys won one, lost one, and drew one (against much older players); and hails the grand old team for their outstanding internationalism, sportsmanship and bravery in touring Palestine at this momentous time.
