Murdo Is Our Special Guest

Football pundit, Murdo MacLeod, will be Shire’s special guest at Sunday’s Lowland League game against Spartans at Ochilview.

The former Celtic, Borussia Dortmund and Scotland star will be at the gamer along with Alex Rae helping our forty young East Stirlingshire Galaxy community team players enjoy their special family hospitality day.


Both Murdo and Alex will have the four SPFL ┬ádivisional championship trophies with them so our young Shire stars can get just the right photo or selfie with the cups and two of Scottish football’s better-known names.

Since retiring from playing Murdo has had a very successful media career on BBC Radio Scotland as a newspaper columnist.

Alex was until recently manager at St. Mirren and before that he was in charge at Dundee. He also had a very successful playing career, mainly in England, and played in the English Premier League with Sunderland.

Shire are delighted to be able to welcome Murdo and Alex to this weekend’s Ochilview game where we have a number of different events planned.

The East Stirlingshire Galaxy players will be sure to have a day to remember which will start with lunch before the game. They will then accompany the teams out onto the pitch as mascots and be presented with replica Shire jerseys.

After the game they’ll have a chance to meet the Shire first team squad.

Four of the lads will also be taking part in the half-time Shire Charity Challenge along with former player David King. They’ll be participating in a football skills challenge with the aim of raising as much money as possible for our nominated good cause.
