William (Bill , Willie) Cowan

We are very saddened to hear that Bill Cowan, a very special member of both the club Board and backroom staff at Firs Park, passed away peacefully yesterday aged 89.

Over many years Bill was always at Firs Park. Outwith his duties as a Director of East Stirlingshire FC he spend a large amount of time caring for the ground, washing the kits and helping the club without reserve in anyway he could. No one will forgot our 1st day each new season when we walked through the turnstiles at Firs Park to see the ground in all it’s resplendant glory, all thanks to Bill’s close season efforts.

He was a true unsung hero of the ‘Shire and will be sadly missed.

East Stirlingshire FC would like to pass on our condolences to Bill’s family at the very sad time.
