Welcome to the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust

Providing Assistance to Junior Sports People

Rowan was a lively, energetic and special little boy who tragically died on 19th April 2010 whilst playing at Gala Cricket Club, aged just nine.

Rowan BolandRowan was a keen and enthusiastic sportsman who even at his young age had already played representative cricket for the Borders Under 11's. He would have had many opportunities to progress in his sport of choice and along with his love, passion and ability for cricket and other sports, he would undoubtedly have gone onto greater things as he grew older. Sadly, these opportunities have been taken from him but in his memory, the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust has been formed.
