Sunday can’t come quickly enough for Hawick footballer Andrew McLean who, if selected, will pull on the black and gold shirt of Berwick Rangers in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.
This will be a big thrill in itself, but there is much much more to this game as far as Andrew is concerned. For Berwick are at home to the mighty Glasgow Celtic, the side that he has supported and loved since he was a young boy.
A regular in the Berwick line-up this season, during which he has made a name for himself with some highly impressive performances as a defender, Andrew is thrilled to be playing against his heroes.
He told the Hawick News: “Since the draw was made I’ve been thinking a lot about the game, and since the start of the week I’ve been counting down the days.
“I’m starting to get a bit nervous now but I’m excited at the same time.
“The players and everyone at the club are all buzzing about the match.”
Andrew continued: “We’ve had a few games postponed because of the weather. However, we played a bounce match against Tranent last Saturday and that went okay.
“Everybody is fit and we’ve got a full squad, and I hope I’ll be picked for the side.
“I still can’t believe I might be playing against Celtic as they’ve always been my team.
“But this time I’ll be hoping we can put one over them and spring a real upset.”
