150 years of Royal West – The book launch

As Vice President I have the great pleasure in announcing the launch on the Royal West book completed by Past Vice President and Club Archivist Tom Mckay.

The book charts for the first time a comprehensive history starting at the very beginnings of our club right through to present day.

It’s a fascinating and factual read having drawn on our own records and other sources which has spanned a 150 years. You will be able to see the great social and cultural changes our members have been part of over the years. Also stories about the characters and background to people who have made great contributions to the sporting success or even survival of the club, You may even feature in the book yourself.

This is a history of a very unique club, which not only has survived but continues to thrive and move forward.

All of the proceeds of book sales, at £9.99, go directly to club funds

I hope you can make it along to the launch on Sunday the 18th December from 7pm, where Tom will be only to happy to sign copies.

Please also watch out for a book launch feature in the Greenock Telegraph

Can I also take this opportunity on behalf of the Committee to wish you a very Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.

Vice President
