A famous face stopped in to sample some of Glenafton's pre-season training last night.

Champions League winner and Scotland and Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour was in attendance as he, and the Glens squad, stepped up their efforts ahead of the new campaign.

Billy even donned a Glenafton top as he was put through his paces by Ryan Stevenson and his coaching staff.

The 21-year-old Ayrshireman, who spent last season on loan at Norwich City, has been seen at Loch Park in the past, cheering on old mates.

A club spokesperson announced on Facebook: "Earlier tonight, we were delighted to welcome Champions League winner, Chelsea player and Scotland internationalist Billy Gilmour to our second session of pre season training.

"This session was geared towards raising the fitness levels of the players for the upcoming season, and we hope the fitness work will be of great assistance to our players and Billy before he returns shortly to Chelsea to start their pre-season preparations.

"Billy is a regular at our games whenever he is back in Scotland and everyone at the club would like to wish Billy all the best for the upcoming season with Chelsea."

The Glens, and all their West of Scotland Football League rivals, are due to find out full details of their league programme when the season's fixtures are released today (Friday).
