Scots Gather To Recognise Winners

sacuThe SACU Trials Committee held their annual awards ceremony on Saturday 6 December at the Army Reserve Centre in Livingston. This was the first time the awards have been conducted as a single discipline ceremony, and was well received by the 120 who attended the event with attendees from as far afield as Aberdeenshire, Lochaber and Inverness.


Guest of honour on the evening and the man presenting the awards was Jackie Williamson, the oldest surviving Scottish Trials Champion and who held the crown from 1962 to 64. He was accompanied by his wife Rose and both had a great night catching up with old and new friends.


A lifetime achievement award was presented to Andrew Dignan of Lochaber who very much dedicated the award to his late wife, Grace. A cheque for £1000 was also presented to the Bob MacGregor Trials Academy in recognition of the sterling work they are doing to promote and develop the sport in Scotland.


All who attended the event had a great evening and look forward to 2015 season.


The SACU Trial Committee would like to thank all who attended, and would like to pass on their thanks to all Scottish Clubs who ran a Championship round in 2014. They would also like to thank all observers, officials and the many other people who make our sport happen.


A special thanks must go to Gary Coward of Highland Leisuresport for sponsoring the Awards Event, and John Moffat for acting as the MC.
