I only saw Graham Leggat play live once. 

 

30 years ago.

 

It was in an old-timers Scotland v England charity match in Burlington, Ontario.

 

The teams were piped on to the pitch, and what I remember most (apart from us winning 3-2) was that when they introduced the players individually they saved Graham for last, and in a wonderful show of respect he was the only one to get applause from all of the other players.

Scarborough is a little over 60km from where I live.

 

My work commitments sadly didn't allow me to stay for the funeral, but I was there for the visitation and was able to meet with and speak to the family.

 

Graham's wife, Marilyn, his daughter, Karen, and his grand-daughter, Isabelle, were all delightful. A really, really nice family.

 

I asked if it would be OK for me to place an Aberdeen scarf and a Scotland scarf as a fans' tribute to Graham, and they were more than happy to let me do so.

Scotty, you over for the Germany game on Monday? I can buy you that pint I promised you on the TAMB about 5 years ago.
Nice touch for Graham Leggat, I'm sure his family are proud that his memory will live on with football fans the world over.
