A sports club president has braved a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style challenge to land a cheque for £2,000.

Craig Leggat, from Stepps Hockey Club, took part in the event organised by the Coalfields Regeneration Trust.

He pitched alongside another 13 clubs from across Scotland.

The money will be used to help the club expand its schools programme, providing taster sessions and after school clubs. Craig said: “It was a bit daunting, but I am delighted at the result. “
