We were saddened to learn of the passing of former workmate – Graham “Corky” Corcoran, on Friday 12th July 2019.
We have great memories of the 35 plus years that Corky spent at Crawford’s as a bricklayer. He was a fond favourite of Michael and his brothers, so much so that they named their pet dog after him!
A top brickie, who worked along side Ally Grieve from Ancrum for many years. Corky was energetic and hardworking, making him a pleasure for all to work with. John Crawford and Corky had a particularly close relationship which transcended normal boss/worker relations.
Our thoughts go out to Corky's friends and family. Another one of the greats away to the casting shed in the sky! ... See MoreSee Less

On the 30th June there was a rugby match, kindly hosted by Earlston RFC in memory of George Crawford who was tragically killed in October of last year. Family and friends of George came together and watched a fun rugby match . All proceeds will go towards the George Crawford legacy trust which helps various charities including the injured jockeys fund and riding for the disabled. Michael Crawford kept up with his lads, but not so chirpy today!! #Them old bones 🙂 Michael CrawfordDonald CrawfordDouglas Crawford... See MoreSee Less

Good luck to Pip Brandon who is travelling up to Ingliston to compete in the Royal Highland Show tomorrow.
Pip is looking forward to the event saying "I am entered in the two side saddle classes on Saturday morning starting at 7:45 at The Highland Show. Parker is looking and feeling amazing even though we haven’t done a lot of side saddle this year due to having to find a new saddle after my last one being broken in a bad fall last autumn. It will be our first show back and I’m feeling a little rusty but hopefully the horse saves the day. Thank you to all of the team for all the wonderful support and I hope I make you proud."
Great to get some news and pics from Team Struthers and thank you Alasdair Mcilroy for this update.
Team Struthers jumped onto the ferry to compete in the Manx on 10-11th May which is a closed road tarmac event held on the Isle of Man.
New car set up from gravel / forest to tarmac and therefore a lot of testing and balance set up required throughout. A strong International event with top competitors from UK and Ireland enjoyed the good weather and road conditions. There were a few “interesting” moments and a couple error but a good learning curve for the team, good pace at times and a good finish! Overall position was 60th and a good third in class for the team. Once again thank you for your sponsored supported as team couldn’t do these events without your support.
Will let you know of future events on the tarmac circuit and with the Jim Clark and Mull rallies now back on this year it looks like an exciting time ahead! ... See MoreSee Less

Great to get some news from Pip Brandon, and her boys. Well done Pip .Look forward to seeing some pictures from Floors. Good Luck from your family at JS Crawford.
The boys had a great day in the sun at Kimmerston Hunter Trial. I decided to take them as it’s a nice, easy and sweet course, after all the difficult big courses we have been jumping it was nice to let them have some fun and it be less serious than usual. Both of them flew round clear and were loving it. It is a very tight winding course, especially for big horses like they are but they both thoroughly enjoyed it. Baby bet Parker again!! Coming 7th and 8th out of 30+ runners. Which was good as the timed section was so tight i couldn’t get them going fast enough! I came home feeling happy as they felt so keen and enjoyed, it which makes it all worthwhile. Looking forward to the summer ahead, our next outing will be at Floors Castle Horse Trials in the Arena Event on both horses on Sunday 12th May. ... See MoreSee Less
