The Terror Of The Highlands (TOTH) Merit Awards
The TOTH merit awards have been presented since 1985 and created by former captain Hamish “Terror of the Highlands” Steedman, nicknamed so by captain Bobby Gamble.
Before returning to Scotland, Hamish created his legacy to the club that had been a large part of his life while he lived in Canada. Hamish had found that there wasn’t enough recognition by the club for the outstanding efforts by some of its members both on and off the field. The TOTH Awards include Most Valuable Player, Most Valuable Member, Most Improved Player, Rookie-of-the-Year.
