Representatives of the title-winning Hawick Rugby Club team were recently honoured at a prestigious Downing Street ceremony.
John Lamont MP nominated members of the Hawick club for the event, which was to recognise sporting contributions in local communities, following their league and cup double in 2023.
Hawick captain Shawn Muir attended with his partner Leah Gibson, alongside Hawick president Ian Landles and his wife Margaret.
Scottish Borders MP, John Lamont, said: “I was delighted to welcome representatives of the title-winning Hawick team to Number 10 at this prestigious reception to celebrate local sporting champions.
“The team did themselves proud with their performances and victories last season. They may even manage to repeat that success this year.
“It is always good to be able to recognise standout Borders athletes. I hope they enjoyed the experience at Downing Street.”
