FALKIRK FC will host Russell Latapy Day (RLD) later this month to honour their Little Magician.
Taking place on Saturday, November 29, when the Bairns host Hibernian – a former club of Latapy's – the midfield maestro will be officially inducted into the club's hall of fame.
Keith Miller, who is organising the event, said: "We are looking for a
sell-out crowd, a great atmosphere and another cracking Falkirk v Hibs game.
"Russell is one of the last entertainers in the SPL so we want to make this a day to remember."
The club has kindly donated a pair of tickets for the 2008-09 Falkirk Oscars/Player of the Year award ceremony to the RLD committee.
Taking place in the Macdonald Inchyra Grange Hotel at the end of the season, it is normally only open to sponsors and VIP guests. However, fans now have a chance of being there by getting involved in the RLD auction.
"This is your chance to be at the Falkirk Oscars or purchase a superb Christmas present for your friends or family," explained Keith. "You can bid by simply sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org – all proceeds will go into the Russell Latapy Day fund."
Those who wish to get involved should send their name, phone number and, most importantly, the amount they would like to bid. Entrants' position of their bids will then be given as soon as possible. The auction ends on November 30, the day after the game, so supporters are urged to bid now!
