A group of young footballers were all abuzz last week when former Scotland manager Shelley Kerr paid them a visit.

Polbeth native Kerr spent an hour at Football Buzz’s Easter Camp in Murieston and spent time taking part in drills and chatting to the youngsters about football and her career.

Kerr’s time as Scotland Women’s boss included leading them to their first ever World Cup in 2019 before stepping down from the role in December.

Football Buzz coach Martin McCann said he was delighted to welcome Shelley to the camp and admitted it was great to be able to host such an event after a difficult year.

He said: “Shelley was brilliant with the kids and it was a real treat for them. They can now say they had a kickabout and a chat with a former Scotland manager.

“She joined in with some of the drills and spoke to them all about the game. She was really engaging and you could see the kids were taking it all in.

“We couldn’t have asked for more and the players were delighted to get that experience.”

He added: “It’s the first camp we’ve been able to run since October 2019 so it was good to get back to doing something like this.

“They were all in separate training pods based on their age groups and it was just great to see so many kids out there playing football because they’ve missed out on so much since the start of lockdown.”
