Biography

Mann quickly became a prominent member of our forward line after starting to play for the club at the beginning of the 1879-80 season. After establishing himself as a key part of the team, he went on to captain the club during the early 1880s and he also represented Forfarshire at county level. His brother Alex also captained the Second XI at the same time.

Mann's son, also William, played for the club during the 1911-12 and 1912-13 season and he ran a tailoring business in the town and kept a keen interest in the club throughout his adult life. He was made an honorary life member of the club two years before his death, and he was the last surviving member of the first team to play on Old Gayfield.
