We are saddened to hear that former Heriot’s Rugby player Gordon Fisken passed away on 19th April, aged 75. He was in hospital and contracted COVID-19 when in there and despite giving it a good fight he unfortunately couldn¹t beat it.
Gordon, formerly a surveyor, played second row for Heriot’s 1st XV in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He was a well-liked player also known as Primo Fisken.
Gordon was a very keen fisherman and was one of the founders of the Heriot’s FP Angling Club – Rusky section.
Gordon’s family have asked that rather than flowers that those who knew him may wish to make a donation in his name to “My Name’5 Doddie Foundation”and they would be delighted to hear any stories you may have. Stories and comments can be left in the comments section at the foot of this post.
The thoughts of the Heriot’s Community are with Gordon’s family at this difficult time.
