Compston Wishes He'd Never Quit Football

The euphoria of scoring for a Scottish celebrity team against an English celebrity team at Wembley has caused former Morton player turned actor Martin Compston to claim he wishes he'd never quit football.

In today's Scottish Sun a full page article by Matt Bendoris tells how Compston scored the first goal in a 2-0 win (Darren Jackson netted the other)and quotes him as saying: "I wish I hadn't given up football." He also said: "That is one of the sweetest moments of my life. It's such a huge honour to score the first ever goal for Scotland at the new Wembley stadium."

Compston began his career as a trainee with Aberdeen. He played a total of 30 minutes of football for Morton over two sub appearances in season 2001/02. In both appearances we lost 4-0 - to Alloa and Queen of the South. The Queens game was the last game of the season and the one in which they celebrated their title win at Palmerston (a certain Peter Weatherson scored two of their goals). Compston then decided to quit football to concentrate on acting but did play for Greenock Juniors for a short while.
