Our Deepest sympathy to Marjorie, Lynn, Stuart and the Bowden family. Dr Bowden is credited with WAFL legend John Colgan joining the club as coach in 1962. This laid the foundation for what is today a successful community club. Dr Bowden was awarded Life Membership in 1989. Dr Bowden donated the Dr W Bowden Medal for the SSMNFL and the SSFL F & B player from 1968 to 2002 and the GFC reserves F & B trophy from 2003 to 2017. He also acted as club doctor and was Patron for many years.
