Bio: 
 
Steve Tosh has been a man of many clubs with Arbroath, St. Johnstone, Raith Rovers, Livingston, Falkirk, Aberdeen, Gretna and Queen of the South all on his CV. His career hasn't been short of excitement, being part of the Gretna revolution (and scoring over a goal every three games from midfield) and scoring for Queen of the South against Rangers in the Scottish Cup final.
 
Now he answers five questions on his youth career for YFS...
 


1. Which clubs did you play for in your youth career?
I started at Leven Royals then played for Savoy Thistle, Abbey Star, Leven Hibs then Glenrothes Strollers.
 
2. Who were the best players you played with and against during your youth career?
Best players I played with were Colin Cameron and Kevin Bain who captained the Scotland team that made the Youth Cup Final in 1990. Top players I played against were Paul Dickov and David Hagen, who was quality as a youngster. 
 
3. Who were your role models as a young player?
Biggest role model was Kenny Dalglish and I also thought Ian Durrant was an excellent player. 
 
4. Who was your favourite coach at youth level?
My favourite coach was my dad although we had a right few fall outs over Sunday tea!
 
5. If you had one piece of advice to today’s generation of youth football players, what would it be?
Never stop believing. I never turned pro until I was 21 and was still playing at a high level at 37.
