The shinty fraternity in Glasgow were saddened to hear of the recent passing of Gregor Denoon, who was a prominent member of the Glasgow Kelvin shinty team who played in the Southern League between 1964 and 1973. Born in Abriachan, Inverness-shire, Gregor attended Fort Augustus Primary School and Glen Urquhart Senior Secondary School before studying civil engineering at Aberdeen University. He captained the university team in season 1960-61 and was awarded full blues the following year. He also played in Scottish Universities select teams in the early sixties.
He is remembered by those who played with him as a very popular player, and as a fast, skilful half-back who had a strong influence in any game he played in. He regularly attended shinty matches in Glasgow and further afield, when he enjoyed meeting up with his former team-mates to discuss shinty and other matters.
He is survived by his wife Margaret, son Grant and daughter Lorne. His funeral service will take place in Glasgow Crematorium on Monday 7th August at 11.15am.
