FORMER stars of Philiphaugh, Alistair Heatlie, Bryan Hoggan and Scott McColm travelled to Ulster at the weekend.

And they came home with a grand cheque to boost the MND Foundation.

McColm, who is a former Selkirk captain, was a South of Scotland team-mate of Doddie Weir.

Since Doddie was diagnosed with motor neuron disease more two years ago he has campaigned and fundraised tirelessly.

The three Selkirk representatives were special guests of Dromore Rugby Club for their game with Grosvenor.

As well as cheering on the home team to a 12-7 victory they accepted the £1,000 cheque to bring back to Scotland in support of motor neuron research.

Bryan told us: "The money was raised from various functions held at the club, including donations from a birthday party for local ex player David Simpson, a collection on the day around the ground, and a generous donation from the Harshaw family.

"A huge thank you must go to the community of Dromore and the surrounding area who helped raise this magnificent total."
