Club Pays Tribute To Bert Macdonald
Former Bristol captain passes away at the age of 89
Bristol Rugby will pay tribute to the memory of former Bristol captain Bert Macdonald, who passed away, aged 89, at the beginning of the month at Sunday's semi-final clash with Cornish Pirates.
One of the most influential players in the Club’s history, the Scotsman played 344 times between 1948 and 1961.
Macdonald was instrumental in implementing changes to Bristol’s training and tactics – paving the way for John Blake’s record-breaking seasons in the late 1950s.
Bert Macdonald's funeral will be held at Slough Crematorium on Monday, May 14, at 1pm. It will be followed by a wake at the Fox & Pheasant in Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire.
