Mainstand Auction raises £63K

25th June 2017

A fantastic day in the Gorgie Suite was a fitting celebration of the Archibald Leitch Main Stand

The figures are in, and the club is delighted to announce that the Main Stand Memoribilia Auction has raised over £63000. 

On a momentous day, over 350 fans packed into the Gorgie Suite as key souvenirs, relics and keepsakes went under the hammer. 

New club captain, Christophe Berra, kicked off proceedings and auctioneer, Scott Wilson, kept bidding motoring along as 147 items went under the hammer. Highlights included a main stand owl which was sold for over £4000. The six turnstiles on offer, were each sold for a four figure sum and the unique wooden signs, discouraging nuisance behavour, raised over £5000 between them.

Guests were regaled with great stories as club legends reflected on their memories of the Archibald Leitch Main Stand. Fans also heard from photographer Paul Gray and from John Miller, who recorded a new song especially for the occasion. 

A huge thank you must go to all bidders who made the auction such an amazing success. The club is incredibly proud of the amazing backing that fans continue to show during this significant period of redevelopment.

The auction was the latest in a series of events which helped to contribute towards the Tynecastle Redevelopment Fund. We are delighted that these events have now raised over £400,000.
