The late 1970's & early 1980's at F.F.C.S.C.

Fraserburgh F.C. Supporters Club was founded in the 1970's. The documentation we have is from the end of the 1970's and early 1980's.

The A.G.M of 1981 was held in the Crown Bar lounge, Mr James Brown was voted on as life honorary chairman, Mr B Skakle (Chairman), Mr I Bowie (Vice Chairman), Mr G Bisset (Secretary) and Mr A Bruce (Treasurer). These gentlemen were the main office bearers and there was a committee of other gentlemen and one lady. At the meeting fees were discussed and the new membership would be �1 for adults and 40 pence for juniors. There were surely no senior citizens in those days? Mr G McDonald proposed that the Supporters Club have a set of rules, whether there were any rules ever drawn up is not known.

The supporters club at this time were giving Fraserburgh Football Club as much help as it could during a lucrative spell for the Supporters Club. The donations of monies for tranfer fees and signing on fees for players was viewed by Fraserburgh Football Club Secretary Hebbie Scott as a great boost to the Football Club.

Arranging testimonials for players like Bertie Bowie, Kenny Roger and John Duthie appears to be the main involvement between the Supporters Club and the Football Club. A poster prepared for the John Duthie testimonial match shows that the opposition for his testimonial would be Aberdeen and the match would have to be played on a Sunday, as most testimonials were in those days.
