In this series we delve into the history of the Trust turn back time and look back on some of the things we have done or been involved with since we started back in ’03. Today we go back to 2007 when auctioned off some one of a kind items at our end of season Sportsmans Dinner. One of those prizes we organised with the club was to have the first fan (not including Monty, Hooky, Davie Sneddon etc…) to get into the team photo for the next season.
Neil Laird bid the most on the night and took his place on the front bench between manager Jim Jefferies and captain (now assistant manager) Gary Locke and rather bizarrely, in front of 5 (five) goalkeepers! On the day the club’s Anne Clark really went out of her way to make Neil and his guests feel at home and I am sure at the time he was the envy of all his mates.
There were other similar auction winners from that night who feature on here in the coming weeks and months.
