IT is with very deep sadness that we have learned that Willie Whigham, who played in goal for Dumbarton during the 1970s, has died.

Willie joined us from Middlesbrough in 1972 and competed with Lawrie Williams for the number one jersey, with the club newly promoted to the old First Division.

He went on to play nine games for Sons and left the club at the end of that season to return to the northeast of England with Darlington.

Prior to joining Dumbarton, Willie had played over 250 games for Falkirk, and more than 200 for Middlesbrough.

The thoughts of everybody at Dumbarton FC are with Willie’s family and friends at this sad time.
