HAWICK Legion are set to mark their 60th anniversary with a special dinner, writes John Slorance.

The event will kick off at the town hall on Saturday, June 15, and the club have signed up Murdo McLeod, pictured, the ex-Celtic and Scotland footballer, as main speaker. In addition to this, George McNeil, a legend on the professional running scene as well as an ex-player with Hibs and Morton, and Langholm’s Dave McVittie – both of whom are accomplished speakers – will take the mic.

Legion chairman David Fraser said: “We also have two singers lined up in Craig Murray, the singer with the Stevie T Band and an ex-Legion player, as well as Michael Sharp, whose dad Viv passed away recently, but he had sung at several of our past dinners. The club felt that it would be fitting that Michael continues in the same vein.”

The dinner will be chaired by one-time Legion player and
manager Darren Thomson.

The meal is being provided by Brydon’s, with the Station Bar, the Legion’s main sponsor, doing the bar.

Tickets are £25 (or £30
purchased with a club tie).

A sponsor’s ticket costs £75, and covers a ticket, five free drinks, and a business advertisement in the programme for the evening.

All tickets are available from David Fraser on 07736 311199.
