Some of the best footballing talent in the Greater Glasgow area began their school term at Holyrood last week.
And it wasn’t just any other school day for the S1 footballers on the SFA Performance School course as they met SFA Performance Director and former Celtic and Manchester United legend Brian McClair on the first day of term.
The Holyrood youngsters, pictured with Brian McLaughlin, didn’t have far to go as the cream of the crop met up at Hampden for the launch of the Little Big Shot Performance scheme. The youngsters split their time between the classroom and elite practice at school with many of the youngsters also affiliated to professional clubs. Holyrood is one of six schools across Scotland to host the SFA Performance programme.
