In a new feature, Blues winger Chris Burke gives a selection of his firsts and lasts.

My first memory... was my fourth Christmas when I was given a bike as a present.

My first pair of football boots... were adidas Questra. They were only £20 at the time - you'd never got boots for that nowadays.

My first replica shirt... was a Scotland shirt which my uncle bought me. 

My first car... was my dad's which he let me use for six months. It didn't have any power steering and the first gear always struggled. So when I was at a red light I used to panic because when I had to put it in first gear it wouldn't go. It was a Ford Fiesta.

My first game as a fan.. was, I think, a Scotland game. I remember my dad taking me down and I fell asleep at half-time.

The last song I downloaded.. was the Jay-Z album. It's good, I like it.

The last holiday destination I went to.. was Antalya, Turkey with the kids and the missus. It's a family resort and it's lovely. 

The last thing I Googled... was my bank to check my account online.

The last present I bought... was for my little boy as it was his birthday on Monday. We bought him Lego storage because he's got so much Lego and he loves Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles so we got him a Lego set of that too.

The last film I watched... was Now You See Me at the cinema on Saturday night.
