A video of a Ruther­glen Glen­cairn foot­baller and his new bride who had the GBX remix of ‘Bits n’ Pieces’ as their last dance song has gone vi­ral.

Newly-weds JC ( John-Charles) and Emma Hutchi­son tied the knot at the Rad­stone Ho­tel on Satur­day, June 18 and de­cided they wanted to ditch wed­ding tra­di­tions and in­clude some­thing that their guests would never for­get.

The 31-year-old Glen­cairn goalie, who has had stints at Clyde, Hi­ber­nian and Falkirk in his ca­reer, watched their video claim over 396,000 views.

He said: “I just couldn’t be­lieve that so many peo­ple had watched it.

“I had put the video on Face­book on Sun­day af­ter we got mar­ried on the Satur­day. On the Mon­day I woke up and my phone was go­ing men­tal with peo­ple telling me how many folk had watched it. It’s just un­be­liev­able.

“It was ac­tu­ally one of my team­mates, Brian Eadie, who filmed it.”

The cou­ple, who have been to­gether for seven years, kept their song choice un­der wraps and even had their band start off by play­ing some­thing else to add to the sur­prise.

JC added: “Me and my wife de­cided we’d do some­thing a wee bit dif­fer­ent be­cause wed­dings are al­ways quite emo­tional. So we told the band to start off with some­thing tra­di­tional and then they went into ‘Bits n’ Pieces’ so no-one was ex­pect­ing it. It’s our favourite song.

“It was a bril­liant day, the best day ever.”

The video put online by JC on June 19, sur­prised the cou­ple with the re­sponse it re­ceived but not the ‘keeper’s gaffer.

Glen­cairn man­ager Willie Har­vey didn’t make the wed­ding due to work com­mit­ments but watched the video back the next day.

He said: “It’s ap­par­ently went vi­ral. I’m not sur­prised, JC is quite a char­ac­ter but you need that in the dress­ing room.”

JC is one of sev­eral play­ers from Ruther­glen Glen­cairn’s squad last sea­son who have signed with the club for an­other year.

Com­ment­ing on the wed­ding day, his wife Emma added: “We wanted it to be remembered by all of our guests and it’s our favourite song, so it made sense to do it.

“Ev­ery­one thought it was go­ing to be a song from Run­rig. It turned out to be a huge hit with ev­ery­one, af­ter all it’s a song that ev­ery­one loves to dance to.

“Never for a sec­ond did we think it would go vi­ral. We still can’t be­lieve it.”

Happy cou­ple JC and his new wife Emma at their ho­tel
