Morning Roundup: African Bouncy, Windass blown away & more

Africans, sectarianism and Scott Brown doing Scott Brown things in Tuesday’s Morning Roundup

Day two of the revived Morning Roundup and we’re slowly working through the haze of Tennent’s and revolting, caffeinated tonic but we promised news every morning and, unlike a certain Donegal-based blogger, we’re true to our word. So, here’s the news.

Under-19’s teach African weans the Bouncy

During their trip to South Africa the under-19 squad paid a visit to Umqhele School in Midrand. As part of their “cultural exchange” some of the lads took it upon themselves to teach the locals a new song or two...

Cinema apologises after evacuating customers in the dark during power cut.

I’m no electrical engineer or lighting dude BUT I’ve been in the odd power cut or two and it does tend to get dark. I’m sure there’s more to it but I lost interest.

Oh aye, and it was Lee Wallace’s birthday yesterday. Happy Birthday Lee.
