Scotland's first ever amputee football tournament has been held in Dumfries and Galloway today.
Annan Athletic joined forces with limb-loss charity "Finding Your Feet" to welcome amputee teams including Manchester City and Everton.
Annan's own disability team were able to put their skills to the test too, as Lori Carnochan reports:
Annan Athletic have been hosting Scotland's first ever amputee football tournament.
The event was organised by local Annan man Brian Murray, who plays for Scotland's only amputee football team, Partick Thistle.
His own team were put to the test by some of the best amputee footballers in the country, who were there representing Everton and Manchester City.
"Two years ago there was absolutely no amputee football in Scotland. We are in the early stages of the sport here, and it's something i'm desperate to try and grow.
Down south they have a great league and a huge interest in the sport. It's something i'd love to develop north of the border and today is really a dream come true for me."
Brian is also an ambassador for limb-loss charity Finding Your Feet, who sponsored the event.
The charity was set up by Corrinne Hutton who was left a quadruple amputee after losing her hands and feet to septicaemia three years ago.
"It's about letting people know that they have a future. Of course nobody wants to be an amputee but it's about making the most of what you've got. Right now we're welcoming people of all ages, male and female, to come and give it a go."
Annan Athletic welcome Scottish Premiership club Motherwell to Galabank this weekend.
It's the team's third match of the group stage of the Scottish League Cup.
They lost 2-0 away at Rangers in midweek, but after a strong performance they will be hoping for a positive result this time.
Kick off is at 3pm at Galabank.
Berwick moved off the foot of the Scottish League Two table by claiming their first league win since Boxing Day with a 3-2 result at home to play-off contenders Annan Athletic.
Berwick had the best chances of the first half before taking a deserved lead after 32 minutes thanks to a good run by Darren Lavery, whose square pass ended in a close-range finish from Blair Henderson.
The lead was doubled 10 minutes later when leading scorer Lavery converted from the penalty spot, but things turned just after the restart when Berwick goalkeeper Kevin Walker was sent off for a last-ditch tackle on Josh Todd, leaving Ryan McStay to smash home a free-kick from the edge of the box.
Berwick's Allan Walker saw a free-kick hit the crossbar, but he was eventually successful after 88 minutes following a counter-attack, and even though Annan pulled another back through Stuart McColm from a corner, the hosts somehow hung on for the win.
Annan Athletic could extend their lead at the top of Scottish League Two today. They travel to East Fife, who are currently second, knowing if they win and other results elsewhere go their way they'll open up a six point advantage. Ryan Dollard went to see them in training.
The chairman of Annan Athletic Football Club has said he would back plan's to allow drinking at football grounds in Scotland.
The sale of alcoholic drink was first banned following rioting at the 1980 Scottish Cup final between Celtic and Rangers.
Scottish Labour and the Scottish Conservatives have both called for the ban to be lifted.
But today the Justice Secretary told MSPs that it was a "serious and complex issue" that needed careful consideration before the law could be changed.
Annan Athletic's Henry McClelland says that the change would have to come carefully, and has suggested running a pilot scheme in smaller grounds.
