The club was shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of club legend Ian ‘Pea’ Oliver today, Thursday 7 February.

Ian had served this club for over a half century in various roles including what had been his current position of Kitman. He had also been a player, physio, coach, acting manager and groundsman.

Berwick Chairman Len Eyre said this afternoon “Everyone at this club is devastated at hearing this news today. Our thoughts are obviously with Muriel and all the family. Ian was such a popular figure not just here at Berwick but throughout Football. We will be honouring him before the game here on Saturday and will issue more details later.”
