We got served very swiftly doon at the front.  ;-).   Just to let everyone know, the Club bought Daves cup final top for a staggering £1350.  Well played Charlie Fraser ( Brooner was still in Vilnius after the Scotland game and probably just as well. He'll probably have tears in his eyes as he writes the cheque.  lololololoololo)

Boots went for near £400, signed Gareth Bale Real Madrid top went for around £700. The auction was very successful .

Overall it was a great ( if a bit long) night. Club poet was excellent, both speakers were rip roaringly funny and Tommy Wright did a wee  chat on stage with Cuptie. Also a very nice and funny video from Del and Doc at Aberdeen..

Well done to Scott and all the committee for  the hard work they put in to make sure it was a great night.

Whilst it was great to see a lovely guy and great club servant like Dave get a well deserved evening; a couple of points should be made.

The speed of service was very poor which was no reflection on the staff serving;there simply weren't enough of them..The time management of the event was non existent.,The last speaker starting at 1150 when people were already leaving doesn't reflect good organisation. In some ways they were the lucky ones, as clearly nobody had told Mr O'Neill that there were a large number of ladies in the audience, as most of his stories seemed to feature fat women and bodily functions and might have been deemed funny in the sixties.

However that aside, all credit to the committee for their hard work in organising a worthy tribute to a great player and captain
