Brian Connelly stepped down last month as Secretary of the Angus & Perthshire RA after 26 years of service in the role.

His contribution over that period of time was significant and he helped provide real continuity for the association across the numerous tasks he performed.

To recognise his contribution, the Referee Committee was delighted to present an award to Brian at the Referee Observers’ Cup Final Luncheon on Saturday.

Ian Fyfe, the Referee Committee member with liaison responsibility for Angus & Perthshire RA, presented Brian with a watch.
