The winning team will have the trophy presented to them and the tournament will become an annual event.

All gate receipts will go directly to the Maxillofacial Unit to support the funds already raised by The Market Bar each year.

Mark, who ran the Market Bar in the town with his wife, Lorna, helped to raise more than £100,000 for the maxifacial unit at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary before he sadly died earlier this year.
