Pars Foods has picked up three gold awards in the first Scotch Pie Club Football Pie Awards.

The Glaswegian manufacturer of pies, pastry cases and savoury products received the top accolades for the Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League categories on Tuesday (11 December), for its products made for St Mirren and Falkirk football clubs, along with a speciality chicken balti pie produced for Celtic FC.

A total of 48 football club pies were entered into the Awards, which were judged by a mixture of football fans and journalists.

The top award for the Best Pie in Scottish Football was made by Murdoch Brothers Butchers for Forres Mechanics FC.

The football category was added as a new category by the Scotch Pie Club for the Scotch Pie Club Awards to recognise the best pie available for supporters to buy at a Scottish football match.

Alan Stuart, competition founder, said: “It gives me great pleasure to be recognising the role the Football Pie plays in our sporting heritage in this way, and I am delighted to say a great pie took the ultimate prize.”
