Forty members and guests joined to celebrate the Old Musselburgh Club’s annual dinner in Ravelston House Hotel.

Jodie Hannan, headteacher at Musselburgh Grammar School, gave the toast to the Burgh.

The reply was given by football legend Billy Brown, a former pupil of Musselburgh Grammar, who entertained those present with tales of his schooldays and football career.

The coach who won the Scottish Cup with Hearts in 1998, his professional career included assistant manager roles at Hearts, Bradford City, Kilmarnock and Hibernian. He also played in the Scottish Football League for Motherwell and Raith Rovers. Billy was also a former Musselburgh Athletic manager.

Club member Karl Cleghorn toasted the guests and the reply was given by Adair Anderson, from the Royal Company of Archers and most recent winner of the Musselburgh Silver Arrow – reputed to be the oldest sporting trophy in the world still competed for annually.

The recent dinner, which was chaired by past president Alastair Knowles BEM, closed with a vote of thanks proposed by Ian Wood, honorary treasurer of the club.
