A Call for Saints Sports Alumni and Their Memories

It’s an exciting time for sport in St Andrews, with a £14 million redevelopment of the Sports Centre well under way, a record number of teams competing in British and Scottish Universities fixtures, as well as achieving our best position in the overall BUCS league in our history. With the 150th anniversary of the Athletic Union fast approaching, it is appropriate that we should look back and reflect on our sporting history.

We recently received this photograph of the Athletic Union Team Captains from the 1964-65 academic year. This serves as reminder of a historically strong sporting tradition here at St Andrews, which is growing even still.

In order to re-engage with our history, we have been working hard in the special collections library, recovering old records and pictures; but we also send an appeal for any sports related photographs you may no longer have use for. This appeal extends to scanned copies of pictures that you wish to keep.

Send them in to: Alumni Relations, University of St Andrews Sports Centre, St Leonard’s Road, St Andrews, KY16 9DY

Or email: alumni@saints-sport.com.

If you would prefer to bring your photos up in person, then why not make plans to come along to our Alumni Festival Weekend, between the 15th-17th April 2016.
