Everyone at the Club are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Willie Pennycook and our thoughts are with Irene and his family at this difficult time. If ever the words “Club Legend” applied to anyone, Willie without doubt would qualify having held just about every position at the Club over the last 60 plus years, from a player through to being Honorary President. Until recent ill health restricted him, he was still an active member of the committee and could be seen on match days helping out on the gate or shop and making everyone laugh with his cheeky sense of humour. Rest In Peace Willie, you will be sorely missed.

Willie Pennycook Death – Obituary, Willie Pennycook Has Passed Away

Willie was a very well-known figure in Perth business and sporting circles. His passion for cricket not only saw him watch his Grandson with pride in recent years at Doo’cot Park but he was also a regular at the North Inch where his sons Jamie and Billy wore the colours of Perth County Cricket Club with distinction for several seasons. There will be many players – and Umpires – who will recall his boundary “observations” over the years.
