More congratulations - this time for an ex- Gosforth player.

3 weeks ago By Malcolm Stokoe

Professor Mike Griffin attains highest office.

Back in the mid Seventies a young, speedy winger joined us whilst at Newcastle University - Mike "Biffo" Griffin. Mike worked his way up to the First XV and appeared in the winning GFC team in the John Player Cup triumph at Twickenham. At the same time he was qualifying as a surgeon - a career that was to see him again rise through the ranks, based mainly at Newcastle RVI . Being a worldwidely respected surgeon, specialising in oesographo-gastric surgery, Mike was appointed,in November,as President of the Royal College of Surgeons at Edinburgh as Professor of Surgery. Congratulations from all, who remember him, at his first love, rugby-wise, Gosforth RFC!!
