Ex-captain’s funeral

THE funerals of former Forfar Athletic captain William Ogivlie and his wife Jessie, who lost their lives in a house fire in Turriff last month, will be held at Parkgrove Crematorium, Friockheim on Thursday (tomorrow).

Bill (78) was originally from Kirriemuir and was well-known in football circles.

He played around five seasons at Forfar Athletic in the late 1950s, early 1960s before moving to Montrose as player manager.

He later spent a couple of seasons on the Forfar management committee in the early 1970s.

The couple moved to Turriff in 2000 to be closer to their son Bill, his partner Zoe and their daughter Francesca, as well as Jessie’s sister Annie.

The funeral will begin at 12.30 pm.
