It is with deep sadness that I have to advise Currie club members, as well as many rugby friends and colleagues across Scotland, of Gordon Stewart’s peaceful death early this morning.

Gordon was a stalwart of our club and local community and a well kent figure in Scottish club rugby. He will be sadly missed as a friend and colleague and as the ‘force of nature’ that reflected his character and drive.

More details and funeral arrangements will follow in due course.
