Scottish World Cup touch football side makes way to Gympie

OCH Mon! The Scottish World Cup touch football side is coming to wee Gympie and they're after blood.

The Gympie Touch Football Association has confirmed it will host the Scots on Monday, April 20.

Club spokesman Geoff Lobegeier said it would be a great chance for Gympie's best mixed touch players to match it against an international side.

The Scots will be based at the Sunshine Coast preparing for the 2015 World Cup at Coffs Harbour.

Lobegeier said local touch player Mitch King, who knows the Scottish manager, set up the game.

"They will be playing a few warm up games at the Coast and we were lucky enough to secure one," Lobegeier said.

"It's not very often you get to play against a national side."

Entry to the match will be free and the association is urging sports fans to head to Albert Park to watch Gympie take on Scotland's best.
