Everyone that knew Paul knew how much he loved his football and in particular his beloved Bankies, so naturally we've teamed up with the club to set up a fund-raising effort for their designated charity, St Margaret of Scotland Hospice in Clydebank.

Paul rarely missed a Clydebank match, traveling the length and breadth of the country, through thick and thin, in all weathers - often with his son James and his wee 'dug' Milly. He was a well-known face in the crowd and a true supporter of the club. He would often write match reports for the paper and being the ultimate pro, never with a hint of bias!

It's a measure of how much Clydebank FC meant to Paul that he ensured baby Amy would be one of its youngest fans and he promptly arranged for her to meet his favourite player, Ken Eadie.

It's a measure of how much Paul meant to Clydebank FC to see the players and staff observe a minute's silence in honour of his memory before their match with Rutherglen Glencairn earlier today.

As well as being the football club's main charitable beneficiary, St Margaret of Scotland Hospice has special significance for Paul and Linda as the staff there cared for Linda's father, John Irvine, before he sadly passed away on Christmas Day 2017.

The Hospice opened in 1950 and since then has touched the lives of thousands of patients with advanced life-limiting illness and older people with complex medical and nursing needs, their families and friends.
