Greenock Wanderers RFC

est. 1873





Dear Members,


There is a constitutional update and cascade meeting on Thursday evening 30th April at 8.00pm in the clubhouse. The meeting is to change a couple of words in the constitution rquested by SportsScotland as they are providing us with Grant assistance for our new Youth Academy Manager role. The meeting is also the opportunity for the President and VP Elect to let the members know what has been happening and what is planned for the future.



Dr John Forster



Greenock Wanderers recently lost one of their stalwarts. Dr John Forster, who was a past player and President of the Club in 1980, passed away after a short illness on Monday 13th April 2015. John was a distinguished member of the club for many years and wrote “the First 100 Years” a history of the Greenock Wanderers from 1873 to 1973. Something that the club is very proud of. He also co wrote two shows performed by the members. In 1976 the Happy Hooker and in 1979 The Happy Hooker or the Paradoxical Prop. John will be sadly missed by all at Fort Matilda and our thoughts are with his family, Mona, Catriona, Jeannie and Iain, at this time.


Funeral is Wednesday 22nd @ 12:30 Ardgowan Parish / Lyle kirk ( Formally St Andrews Church ) Union St Greenock.
