McCarthy makes Whitehill cameo

KERR DODDS, the Whitehill Welfare midfielder, admits he will never forget the moment he scored a goal with an assist from one-time Champions League winning striker Benni McCarthy.

McCarthy caused a stir after making a guest appearance for the Lowland League club in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Hamilton under-20s. He was persuaded to play by Whitehill defender John Hall, whose girlfriend is the sister of the 36-year-old's wife.

"It was a bit surreal that he was playing," Dodds admitted. "His hold up play was unreal. Everything was sticking to him.

"It gave all the boys a lift as well, it probably made us play a wee bit better. He set me up for my goal as well, it's something I'll never forget."
