SCOTLAND's only gay football club are preparing for their first 11-a-side game tomorrow.
The Edinburgh-based HotScots FC now boasts 75 members, less than a year after it was set up.
They are going to take on Haddington Select in a friendly match at Aubigny Sports Centre.
Chairman and founder Kevin Rowe said: "This will be instrumental in our preparation for the Gay World Cup in August.
"By playing local teams, we can break down barriers surrounding homophobia in sport and dispel a few myths that gay people and football simply do not mix."
A Haddington Select spokesman said: "It's all football at the end of the day, and there's no reason why it can't be enjoyed by everyone."
