A Bo’ness boy walked on to the pitch before Scotland played to a home crowd at Hampden earlier this week.

Eleven-year-old Logan King, who attends Bo’ness Public Primary School, was selected to be a mascot at the Scotland v Germany game on Monday.

The youngster walked out to a packed stadium with number four Russell Martin, who is the captain at Norwich City Football Club.

He said: “The best part was standing next to all the players and getting to shake their hands.

“I got to meet most of the Scotland players and some of the Germans.

“My mum and dad put me up for it and the email came through when we were on holiday. I was so happy when I found out.”

Logan was given a special top to wear for the game and although Scotland were beaten 2 - 3 by Germany, he said it was still a good experience.

Logan plays for Bo’ness United Community Football Club and was delighted to be given the opportunity to see what it’s like on the pitch during a national game.

If he sticks in at football maybe some day he could be walking out and kicking a ball at Hampden himself.
