Berwickshire judo star David Fotheringham has picked up a £250 cheque from the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust.

The Foulden teenager, who turned 16 on Tuesday, won a gold medal at the Scottish Championships in November and used the grant to purchase a blue judo suit in order to compete in the British Cadet Championships.

David finished in the runners-up spot in Judo Scotland’s Grand Prix League last season and is planning to compete overseas this year.
