A Glasgow teenager has had her design turned into a wearable jersey after winning a competition. 

Eva Rooney, who hails from Maryhill, recently won a special kit design competition for Queen’s Park Football Club.

The 15-year-old - who is a Higher Photography student at John Paul Academy - had her design featured on a new warm-up jersey which the Spiders’ players wore ahead of their match against Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Hampden on Saturday, December 9.

The kit design competition was organised by Blantyre-based Dunns Food and Drinks as part of its partnership with Queen’s Park FC.

Aware Scotland was responsible for inviting teens to submit concepts or drawings to be in with a chance of winning.

“Community work is a cornerstone of our business and hugely important to everyone at Dunns. We are delighted to have got our partnership with Queen’s Park and Aware Scotland off to a flying start.”

Kieran Koszary, head of commercial at Queen’s Park, added: “We are delighted to be working closely with two local organisations with deep roots in their respective communities.

“We’re looking forward to seeing what 2024 brings for our partnership with Dunns and hope to continue to support Aware and other good causes.”
