A nine-year-old from Sheffield has won the chance to walk out with the Scottish football team.

Cameron Connor from Malin Bridge will walk out at Hampden Park with the Scotland football team ahead of their 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifier with Croatia on Tuesday, October 15.

He won the player escort place after entering a national competition via McDonald’s website.

He said: “I can’t wait to walk out onto the pitch and see the stadium. I’m really looking forward to meeting the players.”

Kenny Dalglish, McDonald’s head of Scottish football, said: “The community programme is about providing opportunities for people to get involved in grassroots football and give youngsters footballing experiences they will never forget.”
