A CHARITY legends match is being played in memory of a former Troon rugby ace, who tragically died more than a decade ago.

David Macgregor, a Marr Rugby player passed away from cancer aged just 22 in 2007. And a fundraising game is being organised by his best friend, David Moffat at Marr Rugby Club, Troon on Saturday, July 13, at 1pm.

David Moffat said: “The aim of the day is to raise money for the Ayrshire Hospice who cared for David in the final stages of his life and I am appealing to businesses in the hope that I can secure assistance in various ways.”

David was an exceptional lad. His love of rugby was only matched by love for his family and friends and his death devastated the rugby club and the community.”

To help with the event call David on 07876 190148.
