Adam Good, sports physiotherapist to the players at Clarkston RFC in the Seventies and Eighties, died last week in his native island of Barra. Adam, who was a fully qualified physiotherapist, worked for the NHS at Cowglen Hospital and also for Airdrie FC and provided rehabilitation skills for injured Clarkston players. Although it is commonplace to see physio assistance at nearly all clubs nowadays, his appointment was innovative at the time and his skills and contacts within the medical arena aided many players over the years.
Adam was a thoroughly outgoing and gregarious character and his attendance on Clarkstons several French Tours helped to make them successful, not least because of his musical skills. Adam could play almost any musical instrument but was most at home on the accordion which was greatly appreciated by the tourists and our French hosts.
Adam will be fondly remembered by many at Braidholm and our sympathies are extended to his family.
