St Mirren starlets enjoyed a day to remember at Hampden as they made it two wins out of two for the Buddies against Celtic.
Players from St Mirren’s Under-14 squad were handed their chance to shine during the half-time break in Sunday’s Scottish Communities League Cup semi-final clash as they took on their young Celtic counterparts in the 10-second challenge.
Each youngster had 10 seconds to run towards goal and slot the ball into the net.
And, in front of a crowd of around 24,000, it was the Saints kids who came out on top, beating their Old Firm rivals 5-4 in sudden death.
St Mirren community coach Brian Sproul was on hand to supervise the kids on their big day out and he said they had a tremendous time at the National Stadium.
