It is with great sadness that Auchinleck Talbot announces the passing this morning of Willie (Cherry) Bryce. Cherry was a stalwart and committee man who gave freely of his time and raised a great amount of money for the club over the years.


Cherry was a real character and well known and loved by all who knew him not only in Patna & Auchinleck but throughout the entire Cumnock & Doon Valley District through his work as a rent collector with the council.


The club would like to pass on our thoughts and condolences to his daughter Lynne and to all the Bryce family for their sad loss. He will forever be remembered with fondness by all at Beechwood Park.
