Charlie joined the Northern from Hillside in the late 70,s, he made many a friend in the club and was a electrician to trade.Given Honoray Membership in 2015 when he celebrated his 100 birthday. Never short of a story, Charlie could have wrote a book about his life, He loved football and played for a few junior teams. He never got tiered telling you about the time he played for Hibs in the late 40,s and was asked to sign and told them politely no (they wore the wrong colour).He won many a pairs competition with another Northern ember Charlie Hart, he was still playing bowls when he was in his 90,s and running up the green. he represented the Club in the Senior fours at Mount Florida along with J.Brodie, C.Kinnear, W.Hay, And the man himself. Our thoughts are with his family at these sad times. as the song say’s Sleep in Peace my Soldier laddie Sleep in peace now the Battle’s o’re.
