The names for the hall of fame were selected with an online fan vote. Among those names is Charlie King, currently managing Brechin Vics, who was a fan favourite during 
his 11 years at the club.

Former City manager Dick Campbell, who now manages Arbroath after a stint at Forfar, has also made the list along with former City chairman and FIFA vice-president David Will, who had a stand at the club named in his honour.

The full list of Hall of Famers are:-

David Will, Tom Gilmartin, Harry Cairney, Charlie King, Bobby Brown, Dick Campbell, Davie Watt and Ian Fleming.

The dinner will include entertainment from ‘The Singing Butcher’, Iain Hunter, and the MC for the evening is SKY Sports, Talksport and Central FM presenter Peter Martin.

The Hall of Fame dinner is part of a weekend of events at Glebe Park.

On Friday night, in conjunction with the City v Cancer Night Walk, the club 
will be hosting a music night in a marquee on the pitch. Performers included Uncle Remus and Eddie McNaughton. Tickets for the event, which cost £10 per person, can be bought from Ferguson Oliver at 26 Clerk Street, The Stables or from any committee member.

Tickets can also be booked by email to the thebigmarqueeweekend@brechincityfc.com, and collected paid for on the night.

The final event for the weekend is a free Family Fun Day on Sunday from 2 to 5pm. The event includes football matches and coaching sessions by Brechin players on the pitch. There will also be a funfair and side stalls on the terracing, and the lounge bar will be open for alcohol sales and light 
refreshments and home baking will be available in the marquee.
