One week until Christmas. One week!

Where has the year gone?

Tickets are available for the popular Royal Burgh of Lanark New Year Dinner which is always an excellent event; click here to see how you can book your place for the 2015 evening.

It has been a busy week of local sport and for one Lanarkian in particular; 19-year-old Charlie Telfer.

The highly-rated midfielder was crowned SPFL Young Player of the Month for November last week for his impressive appearances for Dundee United.

Telfer has also been at the centre of a fierce battle between his current club and Rangers over compensation with Jackie McNamara’s side told to pay £204,000 to the Ibrox club.

As ever if there is anything you would like to see featured on the Lanark Life website just send me an e-mail using the address below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Best wishes,
