Andy set for homecoming

Andy set for homecoming

Andy -

Andy arrived in Scotland late Saturday evening ahead of what will be an emotional homecoming event on Sunday which will give friends, family and the entire local community the chance to congratulate him on an amazing golden summer of achievement.

The newly-crowned US Open champion is expected to arrive in an open-topped bus at 12 noon, and then walk through town towards the Tennis Club courts where his journey began.  

“We’re so thrilled that Andy’s coming,” said Stirling Provost Mike Robbins, who will be Andy’s host and deliver a welcome on behalf of the whole Stirling area.

“It’s always a pleasure to welcome him back, but this time, of course, it’s extra, extra special.  I visited local schools the morning after his US Open triumph, and everyone was just buzzing.  The
one thing the children wanted was the chance to say ‘well done’, and now we will all be able to do just that.”

Andy said:

“I can’t wait to get back to Dunblane to where it all began and share my US Open victory with everyone and thank them for all the support.  It’s definitely going to be emotional, but it’s a very
special place for me.”

The visit is expected to last until 3pm.  Further details when available will be posted on Stirling Council’s website at www.stirling.gov.uk. For the latest information from Central Scotland Police visit www.centralscotland.police.uk or follow them on Twitter @cspcomms
