Kilts were a plenty, as were sovereign rings, patriotic face painting and sweat patches. After a gentle warm up with a few ‘normal’ songs to get the party started, it wasn’t long before the fruitful sounds the great north were bursting out of the speakers and Ross was demonstrating the moves for our first dance together as managers. Quotes for the night... “Up your kilt!” and “spin!!!!” (there was a lot of spinning). In a nutshell, it was a cracking evening and we all now want to be Scottish and Cèilidh every night forevermore! Pictures below. Enjoy.
