Obituary: Gerry Tosh

Scottish Rugby is saddened to learn of the death earlier this week of National 1 Club Rugby Board member Gerry Tosh. He was 75.

A former player for the Dundee High School FP club, Gerry spent many years on the club committee, including as President from 2009-15 and from 2017-20.

He was a prime mover in the merging of Dundee HSFP and Morgan FP Rugby Clubs to form Dundee Rugby Club and during his term of office, the club reached its highest ever level, with seven seasons in the Premiership, one runners-up position and a foray in the B&I Cup.

Gerry’s genial personality brought him many friendships throughout the game and his dedication and sharp intellect, allied to a great sense of humour, shown during his lunch and after-dinner speaking, and MC work, makes his loss all the more keenly felt.

Unfortunately, fate latterly dealt Gerry an unkind hand: as he bravely and with good humour came to terms with losing his lower right leg through circulation problems, he was struck with pancreatic cancer, diagnosed shortly before Christmas.

Gerry was a founding Trustee of Discovery Rugby Charitable Trust and that, together with his many contributions to the sport, will ensure his legacy lives on.

Our sincere sympathies are extended to his wife, Margaret, and to the family.
