Celtic fan Colin Ross took part in 2015 and told Football Aid all about his experience. He said: “I think it’s fantastic what Football Aid do to allow fans such as myself to play for their beloved club for a day.

“Getting to play on the same pitch where some special moments have happened and also knowing the likes of Larsson, Lennon, Brown, Messi and Iniesta and many more have played on it in the past makes it much more special.

“It was my first Football Aid match and I would recommend it to everyone! It has been the best experience of my life and I have done some outstanding things such as skydives etc but that doesn’t come close to this!”

He added: “As soon as you walk in the front door you are greeted by the Football Aid team and their help is fantastic, and when you head down to the changing rooms you definitely feel like one of the team.

“Getting kitted up and walking down the tunnel with your team mates was a very special moment! Big thank you to Football Aid and all of the club staff involved for making my day so special, keep up the fantastic work.”
