The manager was Gavin Graham, formerly treasurer of Langholm rugby club.

When UPS was looking around for an opportunity to advertise its service in the border area, it seems likely that Mr Graham nominated his club for consideration. Accordingly, UPS agreed to sponsor the Sevens at Langholm, providing a good class Guest Team was engaged.
