Fort William Football Club held their annual sportsmen’s dinner on Saturday night, April 7, which was addressed by two of Scottish football’s most familiar faces.

Veteran sports broadcaster Chick Young and former Scotland goalkeeper Alan Rough kept the Fort William players and officials entertained during the celebratory dinner at the Moorings Hotel.

A representative of the club said: ‘Thank you to everyone who attended and for making it all worthwhile. We hope you all had an enjoyable evening and were suitably entertained by our fabulous speakers, Chick Young and Alan Rough.

‘Thanks must also go to our MC on the night, our good friend Dave Edwards who set off on the road to Fort William straight from his Highland League reporting duties at Inverurie.’

The club would also like to thank its supporters, its many sponsors and all the local businesses who very generously donated items towards the raffle and auction on the night, as well as the Moorings Hotel and their attentive staff who looked after everyone throughout the evening.
