Actor Jordan Young - best-known as Alex in ‘River City’ - is to return to his north east Fife roots to take part in a charity football match to raise funds for Age Concern in Cupar.

The former Bell Baxter pupil, who also appeared in Irvine Welsh’s ‘Filth’ and the highly-acclaimed play ‘Black Watch’, will join the teams at Duffus Park on June 1 for Cupar’s own ‘Old Firm’ match.

A Rangers supporter, he’ll be playing against his friend Wayne Melrose, a Celtic fan and organiser of the charity event.

The idea is that players will all play £20 to participate and a collection tin will be passed around the spectators. Wayne is also seeking donations from local organisations and businesses to boost the funds raised.

Kick-off is at noon and more information can be had from Wayne on 07740 585702.
