Memorial match raises charity funds
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.
