Four pupils from Braidhurst High School check out their destination after learning they’ll be able to escape the Scottish winter for a while and head for the sunshine of Australia.

Tom Leighton, Jake Hastie, Dylan Falconer and Rico Quitongo have all been selected as part of the squad representing North Lanarkshire at the forthcoming International Children’s Games to be held in Lake Macquarie, Australia in December.

All four are part of the SFA football initiative at Braidhurst and are pro-youth players - Tom, Jake and Dylan Falconer with Motherwell and Rico Quitongo with Hamilton.
