Last Saturday morning took me to Ibrox Stadium for the Glasgow Schools under 15 final.
My youngest son Andrew was playing for Hermitage Academy and the scene was set for a cracking game. I was surprised that the teams didn't look at all out of place in such a
huge stadium. In fact they seemed quite at home and soon settled down and Hermitage started to constantly attack the Eastbank goal. It was nil,nil at half time.
With ten minutes to go, Andrew rattled one off the woodwork but minutes later Kieran Millar opened the score with a peach of a strike. Super sub Jamie Steeples, made the match safe shortly after and Hermitage took the game 2-0.
It was a great team effort and once again, credit should be given to the coach, Mr Morgan for taking them to their second cup win in a row.
Could it be a hat trick next year?
You will remember me banging on recently about Shine A Light, the Scorsese movie featuring the Rolling Stones, well I spotted this entry in The List magazine.
Now whether this would actually be a practical idea or not remains a mystery to me. It had to be one of the loudest movies I've ever been to. Could it be a new form of early therapy for nippers ?
