The Junior Bairns, in association with the Great Mariner Reef, held their coaching day with the players - and management - of Falkirk FC.

Youngsters were put through their paces by the first team in a series of drills with the chance to score on the Falkirk Stadium pitch, before meeting Santa and stopping off for autographs with the first-team in the south stand.

Lee Miller, Falkirk co-manager, brought his family along too and told The Falkirk Herald: "It's super to see. The Junior Bairns is always a cracking day and the boys love getting involved in it.

"There's a great turnout with more than 100 kids here. this is what Falkirk's all about for me, I grew up with it and know what the club is all about and this is it.

"This is a massive part of what both David [McCracken] and I are trying to do here - we are trying to keep the fans and club together and close with the community. It's been a brilliant day."
