This week I had the pleasure of meeting Rose Reilly in the flesh.  I've been WhatsApping with Rose ever since I started to write our Fitba Legends book but this was the first time I'd met her in person.  It was great.  Rose was presenting a Masterclass for Caledonian University in Glasgow and we went down to see her. She told several of the stories that you can read in the book and more besides. She had us all in stiches laughing - I think she could have a second career as a comedian. I took down some copies of the book for her to have. Eddi Reader, who is a friend of Rose's, was there and she asked me for my autograph!  I was delighted to sign my name on the book for her. But the most exciting news is that Rose is going to come up to the North-east next year and do something with us.  Can't wait!  What an amazing woman she is.
