We caught up with Ryan Kidd this week. We had a list of shoot magazine style questions for him, the ones we asked Sean Brennan and Shea Dowie last year.(https://www.berwickranger.com/blog/catch-up-with-the-keepers-the-answers).
As part of the catch up we handed over £100 to Ryan to help with his expenses as a keeper and at 16 years old it was welcome support.
Thanks to Ian Runciman for the photo.
