Motion Number: S4M-15927
Lodged By: Rob Gibson
Date Lodged: 14/03/2016
Title: League Cup Winners, 2016
That the Parliament congratulates the players, management and chairman, staff, fans and everyone else associated with Ross County on the team's 2-1 win over Hibernian in the League Cup final at Hampden on 13 March 2016; considers this a historic achievement as it is the club's first major honour since it was founded in 1929; pays tribute to the estimated 9,000 fans who made it to Glasgow to back the team, the management and players on delivering the victory and the chairman, Roy MacGregor, whose backing and unstinting support, it believes, has helped guide the "Staggies" from the Highland League to the Premier League, one Scottish Cup final and to the League Cup triumph; notes that both the League Cup and the Scottish Cup are, for the moment, both currently residing in the Highlands; believes that this shows that Highland football is in rude health, and hopes that both Ross County and Inverness Caledonian Thistle can put in strong displays for many seasons to come to help strengthen the game in the north.
