Teen is the talk of the stadiums.

A TEENAGER has talked his way into becoming Britain's youngest football club announcer.

Daniel Mossie, 19, controls the PA system at Second Division side Albion Rovers.

The student took on the voluntary job after his predecessor stepped down from duties at Cliftonhill stadium in Coatbridge, Lanarkshire.

Local boy Daniel, a former Rovers ballboy who first went to matches when he was nine, said: "Nobody else was going to be doing it."

Daniel is believed to the youngest in the role out of all 134 premier and football league clubs both north and south of the border.

His first game was in August, when his side lost at home to Alloa Athletic.

He said: "I was pretty nervous but it's a good opportunity for me.

"It's a voluntary role and one the club needs to fill on matchdays. I'm getting more used to it now and I think I am getting better.

"I'm pretty sure I'm the youngest in Britain."
