DICK CAMPBELL Dick is a former professional footballer and manager, who’s career was spent mostly in the Scottish 1st, 2nd and third divisions, giving him a wealth of material for after dinner speaking. Born in Dunfermline, he had over 200 appearances for East Stirling, Cowdenbeath, Brechin, Dunfermline, Ross County and Dundee United. He also managed Cowdenbeath, Dunfermline, Ross County, Partick Thistle and Brechin, taking them from the depths of the 3rd division to the 1st division, despite their status as a part time Club. He is currently manager of Arbroath FC JIM LEISHMAN Jim Leishman was born in Lochgelly in Fife and signed as a schoolboy for Dunfermline in 1968. Jim is currently Director of Football at Dunfermline FC. He has been a successful manager with a number of clubs including Inverness Thistle and most recently Livingston FC. He frequently appears on television and is sought after as both a TV and radio pundit. Jim has not only played in a Scottish cup final at Hampden but has also taken a team there as a manager. He is one of the most popular speakers on the after dinner speaking circuit in Scotland and his reputation as poet (Fifes Poet Laureate), wit and raconteur has kept him busy throughout the year not just in the football season. He is happy to host an evening or guest as the main speaker and he blends great sports stories with hilarious jokes and poems. He recently hosted the Scottish Wit of Wits Dinner 2004 in Edinburgh. Jim was awarded an MBE in the Queen's 2007 Birthday Honours list.
