JAY Groundland celebrated his return to health at Giffnock Soccer Centre’s award ceremony last week.

The 15-year-old, who stars for GSC’s Milan side, was diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma last year. After a fight lasting several months, he has now beaten the illness.

The youngster presented a cheque to the Teenage Cancer Trust after several months of fundraising, including a team fun run.

In total, the club raised £3,500 through their efforts.
