Headline of the month – Rowan them up

THE former Gretna football club manager, Rowan Alexander, has recently been appointed assistant boss at Ayrshire junior club, Glenafton Athletic.

And reporting the news last week was local paper, the Cumnock Chronicle, which headlined the story: ‘Magic Rowan about’.

The headline was penned by Chronicle editor, Douglas Skelton, and nominated by Matt Vallance for the allmediascotland ‘Headline of the month’ competition – in association with whisky folk, Whyte & Mackay.

Up for grabs each month are bottles of Whyte & Mackay Special whisky – for both the author of the headline and the person who has nominated it, with the monthly winners entered in a ‘Headline of the year’ competition where two bottles, each worth £150, of Whyte & Mackay 30 year-old are the prizes.

Eligible are headlines in Scottish newspapers (national and local), plus Scottish magazines and online.
