Annual Sportsman`s Dinner returns for 2020

Join us on Saturday 14th March for our popular Sportsman`s Dinner held at the Garvock House Hotel, Dunfermline.

Special guests on the night include European Tour Golfer Stephen Gallacher and popular after dinner speaker & former footballer John Gahagan.

Golfer Stephen fulfilled a lifelong dream by playing in The Ryder Cup in his home country of Scotland in 2014, forming part of Paul McGinley`s winning European side at Gleneagles Resort.

Stephen claimed a European Tour card in his first attempt in 1995 and has since won four European Tour titles, including two at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. He also won the Scottish Amateur Match Play, the Scottish Amateur Championship and the Lytham Trophy in a glittering amateur career which culminated in forming part of the victorious Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team at Royal Porthcawl in 1995.

A renowned supporter and mentor to aspiring young Scottish golfers, he plays a hands-on role in the Stephen Gallacher Foundation which aims to encourage Junior golfers in the Lothians and Borders areas of Scotland.

Joining Stephen is after dinner speaker John Gahagan.

Born in Glasgow he freely admits that life never really began until he signed for Motherwell Football Club in 1979 following short spells at Clydebank F.C. and Shettleston Juniors.
John spent eleven years with Motherwell FC - the club he had supported as a boy. He played under such famous men as Ally McLeod, Davie Hay, Jock Wallace and Tommy McLean, winning two first division championship medals in 1981 and 1985.
After a glorious testimonial season in 1990, John moved to Greenock Morton where he spent four years under his favourite manager, Allan McGraw, before retiring in 1994.

John`s tales of woe about life in and out of football have whipped up a comical storm at every conceivable venue and saw John win another speaker of the year award. John`s record to date is now: Five times invited to Speaker of the Year Awards. Five times winner!

We are looking forward to welcoming both to our Sportsman`s Dinner.

Tickets are available via our 1885 Business Club (businessclub@dafc.co.uk) and are priced at £60 per person or £600 for a table of 10. Tickets are limited, so please book fast!
