Tribute to Colin Philip

Colin had recently retired but was still active in badminton. Colin had been heavily involved in supporting the development of junior and schools’ badminton over the years and held several roles in LASBA, the LBG and the SSBU. For many years Colin was the focus the school’s badminton team events in Lanarkshire and helped the development of the county’s players in the inter area and Anglo Scottish events. He also spent many weekends managing and driving our teams to events in Scotland and England.

More recently Colin was appointed the Secretary of the SSBU and was part of the SSBU executive team. He worked tirelessly in the support of many Lanarkahire and National junior and schools’ tournaments. He will be sorely missed at these events.

Colin is survived by his wife Karen and his two sons Calum and Jordan. His funeral will be held at Holytown Crematorium at 2.30pm on Friday 13th and then afterwards for tea at Firpark Stadium.
