DREAM COME TRUE FOR STRANRAER LAD

STRANRAER lad Ross Adams celebrated his birthday with a five-minute slot on national television on Saturday. The football-daft youngster had a dream ticket for the Hampden Park commentary box for Saturday's Scottish Cup final after winning a BBC/Daily Record competition to find Scotland¹s next Rob Maclean.

And Ross' performance impressed BBC bosses so much that he was instantly lined-up for a radio appearance on Wednesday morning. The Stranraer Academy pupil, who turned 16 on Friday, was due to appear as a guest on the Fred MacAuley Show on BBC Radio Scotland at 9.05 a.m. yesterday (Wednesday) to take part in a phone interview on his cup final experience.

An overwhelmed Ross told the Free Press this week:

"I thoroughly enjoyed the cup final, it was a dream come true.

"I was a little bit scared before I got to Hampden, but when the game started I settled into it, it was a phenomenal experience".
