It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Gordon Rose (1944-1949) on 18th May. Gordon, a stalwart of the OSA, was President of the Association in 1981/82 and is fondly remembered as “Mr Old Stationer”. He worked tirelessly for the football club for more years than many of us can remember as well as being OSA Membership Secretary for many years. Old Stationers’ and football club members gathered at Botany Bay CC, after his funeral, to celebrate his life. A memorial cricket match will be held in his honour at Botany Bay CC, on President’s Day on 29th August. Tributes from members and friends will be printed in the July Magazine.
