WHEN the Scotland and Croatian teams marched out onto the pitch at Hampden on Tuesday night, a young Carluke boy marched out with them.

Ten-year-old James Lammie was chosen as one of the mascots for the World Cup qualifier match.

James and dad Ian are Scotland supporters and members of the supporters club which ran a competition to pick the 22 mascots needed for Tuesday’s game.

Ian, who is a coach for Milton Rovers, entered the competition, and James was one of the lucky kids.

James was definitely a lucky charm as Scotland won the match 2-0 thanks to goals from Robert Snodgrass and Steven Naismith.
