Motion text

That this House expresses its sorrow at the passing of Paisley Rugby Club stalwart Malcolm Dodd; notes that Malcolm, or Malky as he was known to all, was a larger than life figure who had volunteered to fill the vast majority of positions on the management committee over the years; recognises that when his playing days for Paisley were over, it was in his role as a junior rugby coach in which he had the biggest impact on people's lives; understands that he helped to produce some of Paisley's best players including his own son David; acknowledges that whether it was in his role as player, coach, bar convener, referee, or simply David's dad, Malcolm was seen as Mr Paisley Rugby Club and leaves behind a legacy that will be felt for many years to come; appreciates that before the home game on Saturday 30 October Paisley players, old and new, linked arms on the sideline to honour Malcolm with a minute's silence followed by applause; further notes that Malcolm's funeral service will be held on Friday 5 November at Woodside Crematorium; and sends its very best wishes to his wife Kathy, his son David, daughter Gillian and all his grandchildren at this sad time.
