Brigade officially opened their new scoreboard in memory of Roy Torrens on Sunday with a large attendance present to honour the former legend.

It was a day marked by further sad news with the overnight death of current President Jim Jackson overnight.

John Manning paid tribute to both men who did so much for the Beechgrove club over many years.

Current Cricket Ireland President Stella Downes did the formal duties, speaking eloquently about the impact and kindness shown by the former player, selector, President and Manager over the years.

Roy's closest friend Robin Walsh, himself a former President added his insight into the career of a remarkable cricketer and person whose impact and legacy on the game in Ireland was unparalled.

Roy's daughter Judith spoke on behalf of the family thanking all who made the journey from near and father to pay tribute to her father, remarking just how much he would have loved watching the scoreboard which doubles as a huge tv - especially on a weekend where his beloved Manchester United triumphed in the FA Cup final.
