Livewire Martin Boyle is already climbing the walls during this extended break from football.
However, on Monday at 12pm the Australian international will be putting that pent-up energy to good use when he takes part in ‘Ultimate Quaran-Team’.
Some 128 clubs from across the globe have signed up to take part in the FIFA 20 tournament devised by Leyton Orient – designed to raise money for struggling EFL clubs, the governing body’s chosen charity, MIND, and the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fundraiser by the World Health Organisation.
Hibernian – represented by Martin – have been drawn against Millwall, who will be steered by well-known YouTuber Josh Zerker.
We’ll be streaming the game, so keep an eye on our social media platforms on Monday morning for anyone looking for any kind of football fix just now.
Martin said: “Like the rest of the boys I am missing my football, so this seemed like a good way to let off a bit of steam.
“I signed up before I realised who I was up against – someone who plays these games for a living and has about 1.5 million more Twitter followers than me, for starters!
“I’ll definitely be the underdog, but I’ll do my best for Hibs. It’s for a good cause and it’ll hopefully give a few people a laugh at what’s a difficult time just now for all of us.
“I’m going to get in a bit of practise with Marvin Bartley and Simon Murray. What could possibly go wrong?”
