Bill Matheson R.I.P.

We regret to report that Bill Matheson passed away on Saturday 31st August after a short illness. Our deepest sympathy goes to his daughters Karen and Laurie and their families. 

Bill was very active in the SAC and a keen sportsman. An attacking centre forward on the football field, a great doubles tennis player and a powerful figure in the introduction of squash as a recognised sport in France. (He also played squash for Scotland as their n° 3). He was a driving force behind the creation of the Squash Section and the building of the first squash court at the Club. He was a Vice-President of the Club from 1977 to 1987.
