Turst hands out more and more grants.

Tweedbank footballer Jamie Shiel has been handed £150 by the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust to assist with travel and equipment costs. The 16-year-old goalkeeper travels up to Edinburgh four times a week to train and play with top junior club Edina Hibs. His dedication has led to selection for the South East Region squad for the past five years, as well as gaining trials with SFL side Livingston.

Melrose footballer Mark Mathison has picked up £200 from the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust to help with transport costs. A member of Tynecastle Boys Club in Edinburgh, Mark has been selected for the East Region and Scotland youth development squads in recent years. He has also earned trials with Livingston, Raith Rovers and Aberdeen. But the costs for the 15-year-old of travelling to Edinburgh three times a week and Glasgow twice a month, are considerable, and the RBMT are happy to assist.
