A young football fan is hoping to be the Scotland team’s lucky mascot against the Czech Republic.

Josh Forrest from Forfar will lead the national side out at Hampden on Monday.

The primary six pupil, who plays in defence or midfield for Kirrie Thistle, has been named the official matchball mascot for the Scots’ Euros opener.

It’s a historic moment for the young Aberdeen fan who will be the first mascot to lead the side out in a major tournament in 23 years.
