In Memory of Jimmy Turner


Jimmy was one of the original founding members of the club.  A well respected and very accomplished fisherman holding all of the club trophies on numerous occasions over the years.
Jimmy worked tirelessly for the club not only as President.  He personally sponsored the Jimmy Turner Shield and avidily supported the Gerry Armstrong Memorial, a boat competition in honour of a former member and friend of his.
His enthusiasm for the sport and the club shone through in everything he did being both competitive and inspiring.
Jimmy will be sadly missed by all and our condolences go out to his family.
