Grand National winning jockey Ryan Mania is the latest sporting star to become an honorary patron of the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust. The 23-year-old from Galashiels has been thrown into the limelight since his victory on board Aurora’s Encore at Aintree in April. However, just five days after he became the first Scot to win the world’s most famous steeplechase for 117 years, Mania found time to support the trust by handing out the medals at its Meigle Fun Run. And he has now agreed to join John Collins, Danny Galbraith, Stuart Hogg, Greig Laidlaw and Chris Paterson as an honorary patron of the trust. A RBMT spokesman said: “We have to thank Ryan for supporting the trust by accepting the role of honorary patron.”
