We regret having to announce the deaths of Laurence Cecchini’s mother, the mother of David, Kevin, Martin, Simon, and Aidan Pia, and Sister Margaret Nagel, the sister of Mike Nagel. Sister Nagel was educated at Sacred Heart Convent, Craiglockhart, Edinburgh. She started as a teacher at St David’s, Pilton, Edinburgh, then became an Ursaline sister, and served for many years in the Edinburgh parish of St John Ogilvie’s. Latterly, she was in residence at the Mother house in Swansea. Condolences have been offered to all families.
We have recently made contact with Michael Morrison (1958-1963). It may be of interest to the many FPs who played for Edinburgh Wanderers that Michael’s father was captain of the 1931-1932 team.
We have made Facebook contact with Gianpaulo LaGreca.
Change of e-mail address:- Mike Dougall.
