Jordan has the world at his feet after football honour

Have your say

CAPITAL footballer Jordan Hunter has been named Edinburgh’s Player of the Year as part of a national football project.

The youngster was selected from a pool of players taking part in the the Bank of Scotland Midnight League, a diversionary five-a-side scheme targeting 12 to 16-year-olds across the country.

Run in partnership with the Scottish Football Association, and supported by the Scottish Government’s CashBack for Communities programme, the Bank of Scotland Midnight League programme now boasts more than 3000 young people participating across more than 90 venues each year.

Jordan was given the accolade for showing maturity, respect for others, and sticking to the positive lifestyle habits displayed by the Scottish FA coaches and enjoyed a tour of Hampden Park and a training session led by former Hibernian and Celtic star John Collins.
