Pitching in to subsidise the costs

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the club’s 2011 Christmas quiz.

In particular, the various outlets in Galashiels which sold the quiz sheets on our behalf, including Langlee Post Office, Woodcutter, Dalgleish’s Garage, Tantalize, Tweedbank Late Shop, Tweed Road Post Office and Kingsknowes Hotel. A special thanks goes to Kenny Riddell who compiled the anagrams of English and Scottish league clubs and made it a real toughie.

The quiz winner was Linda Lee, Melrose Road, Galashiels, who received the £25 first prize which was generously donated by a local firm.

As a result, a total of £172 was raised for club funds which will go towards subsidising match-day costs on the new 3G pitch at Netherdale.
