Countdown to Copa today with NYC Scotland player and co-coach Mark Wilson, an ageing buckie-drinking ‘Ton supporter who thinks he resembles a certain Seaman-lobbing Brazilian. (We think he’s been drinking too many of those buckies!) Mark’s profile is actually sponsored by the Isle of Skye Scottish Pub – an authentic Scottish bar in the middle of Williamsburg and scene of this famous rendition of Loch Lomond by the NYC Scotland squad!
