IOG honours Scottish college groundsmen

The Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG) has presented the Scottish landbased colleges with trophies to present to their most promising groundsperson and a bursary cheque to promote their training.

The cheque will help fund their education and development within the industry. The colleges involved included Elmwood, Langside, Oatridge, the Scottish Agricultural College and GOSTA.

The IOG will divide up the profits from the show to be distributed amongst the students. Last year it equated to roughly £400 each.
