A football fan from Bo’ness is gearing up for a dream trip to the soccer World Cup in Brazil.
Greg Hunter and his girlfriend, Kristen Burdett (both 23) are packing for a fabulous three week trip to South America where they will take in three matches before moving on to visit Argentina and Uruguay.
Greg, an Ineos employee at Grangemouth, started saving for the trip shortly after returning from South African in 2010 where he took in two matches whilst visiting his girlfriend’s family in Cape Town.
Greg said : “We’ve been saving hard since our last trip to the World Cup in South Africa in 2010.
