Rugby afficianado

Gordon is a man of many talents – a former army medic and published author, he was a key member of the Hong Kong Football Club for over 20 years. He returned to Edinburgh to live a few years ago and lives on the south side of the city, and loves to reminisce about his fascinating and far-flung adventures. As a young man, Gordon joined the Royal Army Medical Corps and relocated to Hong Kong to serve there in the mid-1980s. He ended up staying for over 25 years, joining the Hong Kong Football Club and becoming one of their most valued and long-serving members, not only participating as a referee on the pitch, but working tirelessly behind the scenes as the club’s unofficial biographer. Football has been a lifelong passion for Gordon but he loves all sport, including rugby, and has recently been paired up with new Vibes Volunteer Isla. A rugby player herself, Isla loves hanging out with Gordon and hearing his tales.
