Pete McGowan died on Monday 16 July. He was a fine prop forward for Moseley from 1963 to 1970 at a time when Moseley was building its reputation. A Shrewsbury fruiterer who was well-known for his own brand of good humour, his strength and ability were key factors in providing the team with the ball it needed; probably the ultimate 'hard man' of his era. He will long be remembered.
His funeral service is to take place at The Catholic Cathedral, Town Walls, Shrewsbury at 2.00 pm on Tuesday, 31 July.
