Jamie Murray is Melrosian for 2003 - his appointment in the Market Square starts the beginning of a busy schedule of events and functions this year.
Educated at Stow Primary, Melrose Grammar and Earlston High School, Jamie chose agriculture as his subject at college. He is perhaps best known on the rugby field, turning out regularly for Melrose. However, cricket, football and swimming also feature on his lists of interests.
Speaking recently, Jamie said "I know I will be well guided by Charles Robson and Greg Anderson as my Right and Left Hand Men and can also rely on the support of friends, family, The Ex-Melrosians Association and the community in general during the coming year."
