DUMBARTON FC chairman Neil Mackay has paid tribute to our late former club photographer Donald Fullarton, who passed away earlier this week.
The much-loved Helensburgh resident, who was 77, spent over 50 years taking pictures of Sons in action.
Neil said: “We are genuinely stunned and deeply saddened to have lost Donald, who was a long-time supporter and great friend of the club.
“He was very much a part of the Dumbarton FC family and it’s difficult to imagine matchdays without him.
“Not only was he a skilled and talented photographer, but he provided assistance at the club in other ways which were greatly appreciated.
“Our thoughts are very much with his family and friends.”
Recognition of Donald also took place at last night’s Sons Supporters Trust AGM, with the trust board agreeing to contact Donald’s family to register their condolences.
Several supporters and former players have also responded to Donald’s passing on social media, showing how popular he was around the club.
As before, we will post details of Donald’s funeral when we have them.
