Everyone at Falkirk Football Club is devastated to announce that board member and company secretary Gordon Wright has sadly passed away at the age of 61.

Gordon joined the board in 2020 and has been instrumental in every single improvement made at the club over these last few years.

He was a hard-working, diligent, and thoughtful colleague, who had become a good friend to many around the club, known for his gentle manner, good humour, eternal optimism and unique dress sense.

Born in Falkirk and a former pupil of Laurieston PS and Graeme High, Gordon was a lifelong Bairn. He was a member of the Patrons Group, Falkirk Supporters Society and Falkirk Heritage Trust, and his passion for the club saw him selflessly dedicate countless hours for its betterment.

We cannot thank him enough for his dedication and loyal service. He will forever be fondly remembered and badly missed as a friend, volunteer, board colleague and fellow fan.

At this saddest of times our thoughts and deepest condolences go to Gordon’s wife Joyce, his parents Ian and Margaret, his three brothers and all his wider family and friends.
