WALTER Smith attended a graduation ceremony at the Vale of Leven Academy on Friday, September 30.

Eight S4 pupils who completed the 3-year football programme were presented with certificates by the former Rangers and Scotland manager.

Before the ceremony Smith shared some stories about his career with the group.

Although the programme has come to an end for the boys, football has not, with some starting a volunteer coaching programme with West Dunbartonshire Leisure football development.

The graduating pupils were Dylan Brown, Aidan Fleming, Ross Gallacher, Jack MacCalman, Ruaraidh Stark, Raigan Thomson, Ryan Walker and Jordan Wyllie.
