"A product of a mixed marriage (father from Mauchline, mother from Catrine), my dad had me obsessed before my first game; a 4-1 victory over Ayr in 1969. 11th birthday treat was the home defeat by Coleraine in Fairs Cup 1970 but cup defeats at Somerset were much more painful.
Out with 1997 and 2012 the stand-out memories are: Davie Mackinnon’s penalty v Cowdenbeath, the 0-0 at Easter Road in ’94, beer in the square at Kaiserslautern, and a programme seller running away from us at Blackpool - we only wanted to buy a programme!
Since graduating in '82, at least I think that’s when it was, I have had a host of management jobs, ten years as GM at UCI cinemas in Clydebank (I shut a John Menzies store in London an hour early due to Clyde’s 96th minute penalty in ’89) and a brief recent spell in primary teaching, don’t ask. Currently I am manager for a visual arts charity in Glasgow.
My sons are following in the faith despite the older one having an unhappy year in the youth squads. I joined the trust board this year  looking to put something back into the club which has been the source of so many emotions over the last 43 years."
