Calum Johnston Sports Centre
In November 2005, 14 year old Moortown Rugby Club Captain Calum Johnston sadly died after a short illness. Calum was a fantastic and energetic teenager who loved life - and loved sport. He was a good rugby player and a popular member of Moortown RUFC where he captained his team. He looked forward to his annual skiing trip and was a keen runner.
As a tribute to his energy and enthusiasm a scholarship fund was set up by Calum's cousin and Chief Executive of the Youth Sport Trust - Steve Grainger MBE. Steve kick-started the fundraising by running the 2006 London Marathon and since then other family and friends have joined in raising more money.
On an annual basis the Youth Sport Trust with the involvement of our family will identify a number of talented 14 year olds and help them achieve their sporting potential.
This year, the owners of the Far Moss Sports Ground have made the decision to name a new sports building after Calum and his commitment to sporting activities.
