Young Gala is looking forward to the biggest match of his career

The teenager from Maryhill in Glasgow joined Partick Thistle as a 14-year-old and progressed through the Thistlewear Youth Academy.

His recent apprenticeship signed with the club in 2021 and has since gone on to make his first-team debut in a Premier Sports Cup group stage match against Dumbarton.

The 19-year-old joined the Gala in January after spending the early part of the season with Dalbeattie Star. He also enjoyed loan spells at Benburb and Gretna.

Since arriving at Netherdale he has already picked up ‘Man of the Match’ awards for his performances against East Stirlingshire and Cowdenbeath and has become a crowd favourite.

The face of Gala Linlithgow Rose at Ferguson Park in Roswell on Sunday and the Glasgow teen says he wants to put a smile on the faces of concert fans.

He said: “I really enjoy playing for Gala Fairydean Rovers. I’ve been on loan four times but this is my favourite.

“I was apprehensive at first because of the travel, but it’s okay.

“The team is like a family and we win and lose together. Jimmy (Martin Scott) puts his faith in us.

“We all know the club has never won a trophy in its history and we are all determined to make this right.

“This will be the biggest match of my career so far and my first chance to win the Senior Cup.”

Ocholi believes that playing in the Lowland League will benefit his career and recommends that other young men from league teams follow suit.

He added: “The Low League is very competitive. Playing against talented players from Rangers and Celtic is a great experience as is playing against physical sides like the Spartans and East Kilbride.

“I would recommend Gala Fairydean Rovers to any young player who wants to progress in the game.”

Gala Fairydean Rovers will run the fan bus to the East of Scotland Cup Final at Ferguson Park in Rosewell leaving Netherdale at 12.30pm. Seats must be reserved in advance via the club’s Facebook page.
