Visiting four East Lothian football matches in one day was a “fantastic, but tiring experience” for football vlogger Sam North.

Sam’s football vlogs. Footy Adventures, on YouTube have become increasingly popular over the last few years, with the page amassing over 150,000 subscribers.

He has visited games raging from Rangers’ 3-1 triumph over RB Leipzig at Ibrox to games in the Lowland League.

His latest adventure saw him take part in Groundhop Day seeing four East Lothian sides in action in one day.

The annual Groundhop Day offers football fans the chance to see four nearby games in a single day, with further fixtures on the Friday evening and Sunday.

On Saturday, Sam watched Dunbar United take on Coldstream (11.15am), followed by Haddington Athletic against Dundonald Bluebell (2pm), Tranent Juniors against Bo’ness United (5pm) before finishing up with a trip to Olivebank to watch Musselburgh Athletic against Broxburn Athletic (7.45pm)

Sam told the Courier: “I had never been to four games in one day before. It was a fantastic but tiring experience.

“I think previously I had went to two games in one day to film two separate videos. I think St Johnstone were playing and then I went to see Dundee United afterwards.

“It was great to go along with all the fans on the way and I think some of the crowds were three or four times bigger than the average crowd at a game which is great to see.

“I always said that I prefer the atmosphere at smaller games like these ones. The stadiums all have a unique feel to them and you can get so close to all the action.

“At the bigger games you get your seat and you have to stay there. But here you have more freedom to roam around and follow the game.”

And Sam said it was the Tranent game that stood out most to him.

He said: “The atmosphere at all the games was great, but I really enjoyed the Tranent game.

“I follow the Lowland League quite closely and Tranent are doing fantastic this season and are in with a chance at winning the title.

“Spartans had lost the night before so there was a real sense that this was an opportunity to close the gap.”

Sam said he particularly enjoyed seeing the same fans at all four games.

He said: “It was a long day because there wasn’t that long between each game. So by the time you travelled to the next game you didn’t have long to wait.

“Usually, I am at games a couple of hours early to chat with fans and maybe a manager. But with this it was a tight turnaround.

“The fans were great though and it was fantastic to see so many people taking part and watching every game.”

Sam said he would keep an eye on upcoming games and could make a return to the county in the weeks or months to come.

He said: “I’ll maybe be back soon. Tranent face Spartans in a couple of weeks which could be a huge game. So depending how the table looks then, I might get along for that one.

“I’m going to watch the Scotland international games coming up and we will take it from there.

“I’m really just waiting for spring now. It has been a long winter and I can’t wait for the warmer football days.”
