John F Murray – Sponsor of GS Modena in the 1990’s


It’s always sad when you lose a friend – when it happens on Christmas Day it makes it all the more painful, so it’s with particular sadness we report the loss of John F Murray, sponsor for several years of Scottish cycling team, GS Modena / M & M Windows.

John F Murray and I set up M & M in 1988; hitherto GS Modena had been sponsored by CR Smith.

When I left Smith’s and teamed up with John to set up M & M Windows I had to explain that I came with ‘baggage’ – namely a cycling team.

John took a longer than usual draw on his fag, hit me one of his stinging ‘one liners’ and that was it, we were in business with John as our loyal and supportive sponsor.
