Tributes to Scott

 
 
 

A lovely, humble, young friend to many

THE people of Langholm have been shocked at the tragic and sudden death of Scott Morrison last week.
Many heartfelt tributes have been paid to Scott who was an accomplished bowler and horseman. He studied sports journalism at Stirling University before changing to politics and graduated with a 2:1 last year.
Scott, 22, was the son of Tommy and Diane Morrison who live in the High Street from where they run their bike shop and garage.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We were made aware of a man being injured by a horse at about 4.30pm last Wednesday. “He was taken to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle with life-threatening injuries and died a short time later. “A report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.”


Langholm Common Riding, of which he was an enthusiastic supporter, said: “It is with a heavy heart that we report the tragic death of one of our youngest members, Scott Morrison. “Scott was a dedicated and hardworking member and will be sadly missed by us all. “Our deepest thoughts and condolences are with our vice-chairman, Tommy, his wife, Diane, and all family and friends at this devastating time.”
Scott was a member of Langholm New Town Bowling Club where he had many friends and admirers of his bowling prowess. The club said: “We are all deeply saddened by the news we received of our valued member and friend Scott Morrison, who passed away after a tragic accident. “The club would like to extend its condolences to Tommy, Diane, Colina and family members who can only be going through a horrendous time. “Members of the community and the club are truly devastated. Rest in Peace Scott.”
Scott had been a member of the Young Riders Club, of which his father was a founder member. They said: “It is with great sadness for our club to report the tragic death of former member Scott Morrison. “He was a member through all his youth and was always willing to help in the past few years with anything needed. “Tommy is a founder member of the club and we cannot think of what pain he and Diane will be going through. We send our deepest sympathies at this very sad time for them and their family. RIP Scott.”


Langholm Old Town Bowling Club added their tribute, saying: “We are very, very sad to hear of the death of Scott Morrison. “A lovely, humble, young friend who won many accolades both here and around the circuit. “Condolences to Tommy, Diane, Colina and all their family from everyone here at Langholm Old. Thinking of you all.”
