Welcome to The Middleton Trust website.

The Trust was set up in 1990 to promote the activity and performance of sporting talent in young persons under 18 years, who are resident in Ellon and District, and who would be unable to develop their talent fully without such assistance. 

                                                               Alan C. Middleton

Alan's contribution to sport in Ellon and District was immeasurable. He was a participant, administrator, coach, and above all an enthusiastic lover of all aspects of sporting life. He had an exceptional rapport with everyone that he came into contact with, or interacted with.

 His own activities encompassed football, golf, squash, cycling and marathon running, but his    undoubted favourites were badminton and cricket. In badminton he achieved personal success at the highest level; he devoted incalculable time and effort in administrating at club and district level and his devotion and dedication to coaching developing junior players was legendary. Alan enjoyed equal success on the cricket field where he was by far Ellon's most successful captain in the club's 135 year history. His cricketing achievements were as impressive as those on the badminton court. Perhaps his greatest sporting moment was to captain Ellon's Scottish champion team in the Haig National Villages Tournament in 1973, a feat which he repeated in 1986 in the SCU Small Clubs Cup Tournament.

Following his untimely death in 1989, the Alan Middleton Trust was set up to honour his memory and to recognise the contribution and commitment he made to sport in general. The Trust assists in the development of sporting talent among young people in the Ellon area, providing grants for under-18's. To date some 22K has been disbursed to young sportsmen and women in the following sports: rugby, athletics, tennis, nordic skiing, horse riding, football, cycling, hockey, swimming, diving, golf, squash, badminton, gymnastics, volleyball and skating. If you feel you are eligible for a grant, or you know of someone who fulfils the criteria, please click here for further information and an application form

The Middleton Trust hopes to continue to build a brighter future for young people through sport.
