BORDERS Sport and Leisure has announced the appointment of David Ferguson as chairman and Graham Capper as vice chairman of the organisation’s Board.

Both members are looking forward to playing an active role in driving Borders Sport and Leisure forward.

Chairman, David Ferguson said: “This is a very exciting time for sport and leisure in the Borders and myself and Graham are honoured to have been asked to lead the board of the Trust. We have a strong board full of leaders, creative thinkers with terrific business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit, and a committed, enthusiastic staff, and that is crucial to taking sport and leisure forward.”

David Ferguson, a sports journalist with The Scotsman, has been a member of the Trust board since 2006 and vice-chair for the past three years. He took over the role of chairman from Tony Taylor who stepped down from the post but will remain an active Board member.

Graham Capper, a chartered surveyor and athletics coach for the last ten years, replaces David as vice-chair.
