In Memory AM Pattullo

It is with sadness that Gala RFC report that AM Pattullo passed away on 11 November. Our thoughts and condolences go to his family and friends.
Alistair Mearns Pattullo, born in Dundee 1926. He worked as a Telegram Boy before 47 years in the General Post Office, first in Perth then promoted to Galashiels in 1951.
Having been introduced to rugby by Andrew Davidson at a 7s tournament Alistair became involved with Gala RFC Supporters Club in 1969, and eventually President of the Supporters Association, and was co-opted onto the Club Committee in 1972 which he served for the following 17 years.
Alistair became Assistant Secretary in season 75/76, then Club Secretary in 77/78, a position he held until being elected Vice President in 83/84 then President of Gala RFC for two seasons from 85/86.
He was elected a Life Member in 2009. He continued to support Gala as it was “in his blood”, and was a regular member of the Friday Lunch Club.
Alistair will be missed at Netherdale – RIP
