For those that do not know the club were sad to hear of the passing away of 2 club members, Donald Maiden and Dougie Dewar. Both had been long standing members and will be missed by all.
Donald Maiden - Malcolm Maiden has written the following in memory of his Dad.
My dad joined Corstorphine RFC in 1989 after he retired from long working career mainly at sea were he was chief/marine engineer on ships such as the Brescia, Georgic & Queen Elizabeth to mention a few. I thought he'd be at home chewing the fat with like minded guys of similar age. It certainly worked. He was a constant in the following years rarely missing a Tuesday or Saturday. He wasn't a player himself but he did enjoy watching all the teams at Union Park both Corstorphine & Cougars. I'd like to thank his band of friends who made him laugh & giggle. He really did enjoy the chat, the more politically incorrect the better. Once I'd finally stopped playing he enjoyed watching Marc & was a very proud granddad when he made it into the 1st xv for both old & new clubs.
He died peacefully after a fantastic struggle which saw him beat most medical experts predictions of imminent death. He finally succumbed to the many years of fighting illness & died peacefully in St Columba's on Friday 5th June. I will miss him greatly & I'm sure many others will too.
We have the humourous and nostalgic tribute made by Al Paterson on Dougie Dewar at his funeral available to read as a pdf. Click here to read the tribute to Dougie Dewar.
