Me­mo­rial match raises char­ity funds

The Galloway News - - MOTORS -

The sixth match for the Scott McNi­col Me­mo­rial Tro­phy took place re­cently.

For Scott, who was from Cas­tle Dou­glas, sea an­gling was his life and he be­came a top an­gler within the Peever Club. He won gold at three lev­els for the SFSA Home Na­tion ju­nior, youth and se­nior teams.

Sixty-five an­glers took part in­clud­ing nine ladies and seven ju­niors.

The ladies win­ner was Leanne Dyer, the ju­nior win­ner was Jack McGarva and the over­all win­ner was Paul McKie with a 9.35lb Bull­huss.

The prize­giv­ing was at Monty’s Bar and as usual it was a good turnout for the evening. Be­tween the fish­ing and the so­cial night £3,000 was raised which was split be­tween the Scot­tish Fed­er­a­tion of Sea An­glers ju­nior de­vel­op­ment fund and Dum­fries and Gal­loway Blood Bikes.

As cap­tain of the youth team Scott en­joyed coach­ing the younger an­glers and de­vel­op­ing the team. Funds raised will help carry this on.

Dum­fries and Gal­loway Blood Bikes is a char­i­ta­ble or­gan­i­sa­tion set up by vol­un­teers to de­liver es­sen­tial blood and ur­gent med­i­cal sup­plies be­tween hos­pi­tals and health­care sites. One of the cars has been named in hon­our of Scott and is called“Scot­ty­boy”.

Thanks go to spon­sors Eric Mont­gomery, JD Keys & M. Mc­Cowan & Sons.
