Lewis Watson

Lewis Hay Irving Watson

Falkirk Mail - Sat 8th Jul 1922

"Many of the old Falkirk supporters will regret the demise of old "Lewey" Watson, who about 30 years ago was one of the keenest and most enthusiastic members of the club. He was a notable figure in the days when "Bob" Bishop was secretary, and when the A.G.M. was held in the big room o the old Newmarket Tavern. "Lewey" was a keen critic, but his heart was always with the "Bairns," and up to a few months before his death he showed an interest in his team's welfare."

"Watson - At 102 Manor Street, Falkirk on 27th Ult. Lewis Hay Irving Watson, aged 78."
