A plain english translation for those not gifted in scots.

Bell rings, out the door, grab the ball, run round the back; last one there’s a gay, tax not in, Jack, Ryan and Scoba against the rest, nut, numbers is fairest,  Jack was always too good anyway; you’s have sticky but we’ll kick to you; frenzied attacks ensue, 20-odd laddies chasing a ball, sometimes it crosses the line and then the direction changes, raisin-heid takes a tumble in the box, the controversy is settled by the age old measure of a ‘penalty aboot it’, Jack steps up and chips it over my floundering body with outrageous cheek; frustration gripped my young body, the bell goes again, next goal the winner, game on; Scoba releases Jack down the right wing, flies past three of us and sends a powerful shot straight between my legs to win the game, I send a powerful shot into his nose, he gives me one right back, fair play; a lad will fight long and hard for bragging rights, grab the ball, run round the front, back to school.
