Harlequins win new trophy in memory of Kelso rugby stalwarts Jock and Jocelyn Todd
Kelso Harlequins this week paid tribute to late rugby stalwart Jock Todd by winning a new trophy named after him and his wife Jocelyn.
The semi-junior side ensured the cup will be staying in the Todds’ home-town by beating Duns/Jed Thistle 18-3 at their Poynder Park home ground.
The trophy, donated by the Todds’ family, is to be contested annually in memory of their dedication to the Quins.
It was presented by their grandsons Owen and Ewart Sanderson to Quins captain Mitchell Laing after his side’s victory.
