St Mirren fan Gordon Russell felt like he was in a dream world as he enjoyed a special day out at Hampden Park with Buddies’ number one Craig Samson.
Gordon was one of 12 winners of the ‘In Safe Hands’ competition run by home improvement firm Weatherseal, which is one of the SPL’s sponsors, and his reward was to be invited along to the National Stadium for a unique photoshoot with ‘Sammy’ and goalies from the other 11 top-flight clubs.
He was also presented with a St Mirren shirt and a pair of tickets to the game against Inverness on Wednesday night, which the Buddies won 2-1.
