Tom Robertson [posted 03/01/16]

The club was saddened to learn today, that Tom Robertson passed away this morning after a short illness.  Tom joined Poloc in 1965 and played for the 1st XI for a number of years, captaining from 1973 to 1977.  He played in the Western Union-winning teams in 1981 and 1983, and the Scottish Cup winning side of 1984.  In all games he took 677 wickets and scored 5,901 runs.  TBR, as most referred to Tom as, was also President of the club during one of its most successful times in the early '80's, for many years acted as Junior Convenor, and was Special Efforts Convenor running the Burns Supper, fĂȘtes, barbecues and dances.

A fine after-dinner speaker, Tom had a very quick, and wicked, sense of humour which many members will remember.  Despite suffering in recent years following a severe stroke he still wanted to know how Poloc were doing, and was delighted when they won.  He will be sadly missed.  Our sympathies are with his wife, Avril, son, Kenneth and daughter, Lynsey, as well as the wider family at this sad time.  Funeral arrangements will be posted later.
