‘Well mourn the passing of Bill Dickie
Motherwell FC are today mourning the death of vice-chairman Bill Dickie, who sadly passed away last night.
Dickie, a former President of the Scottish Football Association (SFA) and Chairman of Motherwell Football Club between 2003 and 2008, was one the longest serving directors in Scottish football with over 30 years of service.
He was also a renowned architect and operated from his business on Hamilton Road, just minutes from Fir Park.
Commenting, Chief Executive Leeann Dempster said, “Everyone is absolutely devastated by Bill’s sudden passing.
“He was one of those characters that was so bright and bubbly; it has come as a great shock to everyone at Fir Park.
“Indeed, just last Saturday he was in and around the club for the Scottish Cup clash with Queen’s Park being his usual self. He was being very positive about the team and the future of the club in his own unique style.
“It goes without saying that we would like to pass on our deepest condolences to Bill’s family and close friends at this very sad time.”
Motherwell Football Club will host a tribute to Bill at Saturday’s SPL clash with Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Fir Park.
