Jack's new career

Thursday, 30th August 2012

Former Falkirk and St Mirren footballer Jack Ross yesterday launched a career as a children's author.

As part of the Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge Scotland he met pupils from his old primary school, Comely Park, to tell them about "Alfie the Adventurous Winger".

“I was absolutely delighted to be invited by Tesco Bank to read my first book to the children from Comely Park," Jack said.

"It was a bit like making my debut, all over again, but I think it was a fantastic experience and I hope the children enjoyed it as much as I did.

"I think there’s a real opportunity to use sport, which motivates and excites kids, to encourage them to read.
