Bonnyrigg's night at the races

BONNYRIGG ROSE have arranged a special fund-raising event tomorrow night - to help pay players' wages during the big freeze.

The decision to hold the hastily-organised race night, which is taking place in Bonnyrigg Social Club from 7.30pm-11.30pm, highlights the situation Junior clubs are in as they face a lengthy lay-off for the second winter running.

"There's no income coming in due to the lack of activity on the pitch, but the club still has to find money to pay the players," said Rose boss Alan Miller. "We're all in the same boat, hence the reason the club has decided to organise the event on Friday night."
