Appointments for 2020/21 and prize winners for 2019/20...
The first annual general meeting of Watsonian Football Club Limited was held this week.
Given the current climate members met via Zoom and heard from Secretary Iain Leslie, President Euan Kennedy, Director of Rugby Chris Hunter and Treasurer Ramsay Urquhart.
Euan and Chris updated members on a successful 2019/20 season which included the Super6 squad finishing top of the FOSROC Super6 table before lockdown came in March, the Women’s XV winning the Premiership unbeaten, the club 1st XV putting in a good showing with a young squad to finish mid-table in National One and Ali Campbell and Fergus Henderson working hard to get club 2nd and 3rd XVs out regularly.
They also took time to thank everyone who plays their part in making the club what it is - including Forbes Connor and John Kerr who are stepping down from their Vice-President roles - and reserved special mention for GWC Head Groundsman Willie Morton who passed away in July 2019 and WFC Treasurer Mike Crerar who passed away in February 2019.
Ramsay reserved special mention for Mike’s wife Sheena who did stellar work to allow the handover of the Treasurer’s duties to be as seamless as possible in different circumstances.
