Edinburgh Cala Hockey Club heard the sad news last week that former member, Peter Bruce had died aged 86.

Edinburgh Cala Hockey Club heard the sad news last week that former member, Peter Bruce had died aged 86 after a sudden illness. Peter suffered a few health issues in recent years, but passed away peacefully at the end.

Father of five, Peter was one of the first members of the Edinburgh Civil Service hockey club - which was the forerunner for what is now our EHC men’s section – and captained the men’s 1st XI. Despite hanging up his shin pads a while ago, he still kept in touch with a group of veteran club members, known as ‘The Fogies’ for monthly lunches and chats!

Peter is second left, middle row.

Peter was a talented hockey player, a loyal stalwart of EHC, a true gent, and part of our club family. On behalf of the club, Colin has sent condolences and warm wishes to Peter’s family.

A celebration of Peter’s life which will be held at Corstorphine Old Parish Church on Monday 8 October at 4.30pm. All friends are welcome.
