HOLLY SHEPHERD from the Gala Mini Maroons was one of the Scotland mascots at the recent Scotland Autumn test against New Zealand.

Holly is a key member of the primary 6 mini maroons squad and attends St Peters Primary School.

She also plays football regularly with Gala Dean Under-11s as defender and is an all-round sports person. She recently achieved Scottish Judo Champion in her age/weight category at Meadowbank Stadium.

One to watch for the future, Holly said: “I had a fantastic time at Murrayfield and although Scotland did not win, it was great to meet the players and to run on to the national pitch.”
