JIM MOODY has stood down from his position as chairman of Selkirk FC due to health reasons, writes Fiona Scott.

After three and a half years at the helm of the Yarrow Park outfit, Moody, a Scottish Borders Council employee, has decided it’s time to step back and take a more relaxed role at the club.

He told The Wee Paper: “I will never see Selkirk stuck and will stay on the committee in an advisory capacity. I have been advised to avoid any extra duties in order to keep my stress levels down, so unfortunately my time as chairman has come to an end.

“I will still support the club, though, and will be down watching the games on a Saturday afternoon.”

Current vice-chair Brian Combe will step into the breach until the end of the season, while Ross Anderson takes on Brian’s position.

Following their week off due to lack of fixtures, the Selkirk team are back on duty tomorrow when the South Cup takes precedence.

Bryan Templeton and his men have a prime Borders derby to look forward to when they host a second-round clash against Kelso, who are on a high following a league victory over Gala Fairydean last weekend.

The Selkirk team boss is under no illusions, however, concerning the visitors and what his team have to do.

“Kelso will definitely be up for it tomorrow and It will likely be a bit of a battle. If our boys play like they can do, though, it shouldn’t be a problem. We will be playing our football and concentrating on getting a win.”

Ross McManus, Davie Battle and Jason Inglis will all be missing from the Selkirk team line-up due to work and holiday commitments.
