75th Anniversary 29th October 1954

Was getting a load of rubbish moved when I came across this poem that was done for the above. by then Member Willie Stewart . Some of the older Members will mind of this great man  please take sometime in reading this it show’s what this Club meant then and what it means today.

Doon here we happily congregate
To mark a most important date
For oor auld Club still much alive
Has reached the age of 75!

‘Twas first to Perth Street it set foot 
But there it didna lang tak root. 
Syne up to Warriston it came
 to find a mair congenial hame.

Throughout the years of peace and strife
it served the purpose of its life.
And still today can justly claim 
with friendship strong it plays the game.

And so tonight Oor thoughts incline
To those guid lads of “seventy nine”
who, after much consideration,  
Gaed further east for recreation.

We’re pleased to say with truthfulness 
the change has met with great success. 
For where could we hae happier been
Than on the charming Northern Green.

With Presidents we’ve been weel blest
Whose aim was aye to dae their best.
They served the Club with prudent care
And been a credit to the Chair.

To other posts those we’ve elected
Ha’e done as weel as was expected.
Their work performed with strict attention
Is surely worthy o Oor mention.

Of those on oor auld Roll of Fame
We feel that we can say the same. 
With concentration, care and skill.
To win, they proved they had the will

Like other Clubs we’re prood to say  
We welcome Rinks with us to play. 
And though we dinna beat them a’ 
Oor score is very seldom sma.

And so may we this friendship cherish
With the hope it ne’er will perish. 
Finding in each other merit
With the true and kindly spirit.

Noo let us hope and trust we may 
be privileged for lang to stay. 
And roll oor bools with pleasure keen
Upon the bonnie NORTHERN GREEN.
