squad yes­ter­day as part of his prize. He also went on a be­hind-the-scenes tour of the Global En­ergy Sta­dium and was pre­sented with a pair of signed gloves from goal­keeper Scott Fox.

This year’s event will take place on Oc­to­ber 21, on the day that Ross County wel­come Hamil­ton Aca­dem­i­cal to Ding­wall in the league.

All par­tic­i­pants will re­ceive a free match day ticket. Jim McIntyre said: “I think it’s a fan­tas­tic achieve­ment for an 11-yearold boy to raise £650 for Mag­gie’s. I took my play­ers to Mag­gie’s High­lands in In­ver­ness last sea­son and we were blown away by the amaz­ing work they do there to help peo­ple liv­ing with can­cer, and their fam­i­lies.”

Mr McIntyre added that there were 170 par­tic­i­pants last year but the aim is to “smash through the 300 bar­rier” and “at least dou­ble” the fundrais­ing amount. Winger Michael Gar­dyne said Alis­tair told the play­ers he will try to beat the amount he raised last year, and will chal­lenge his pals to do the same.

Mag­gie’s of­fers free prac­ti­cal and emo­tional sup­port for peo­ple liv­ing with can­cer, and their fam­ily and friends.
