The Ironmen Gazette newsletter was started by Bob Cockburn as a means of staying in
touch with former players after they moved on from UNB. It was started in the early
1980’s and continued up until Bob retired as coach in 1999. After a long absence the
Gazette was revived by Bob in the spring of 2014. Through the help of the UNB Alumni
Office these more recent editions of the Gazette are available on-line. The UNBRFC
Alumni Executive would like to thank the Alumni Office staff for their support in
providing the platform for on-line viewing of the Ironmen Gazette.
