It is with sadness that we learn of the passing yesterday (Wednesday) of our long serving Commercial Director / Associate Director Arthur Lynch.
Notwithstanding his recent illness, it was a shock to learn of his sudden passing.
Arthur came on Board 20 years ago and helped out with many commercial matters, players sponsorkit, programme advertising, matchday team sheets and hospitality etc. It would be fair to say he had his own unique style on a matchday.
His recent illness had prevented him from attending games but he was still very much ‘working from home’ and still sent through the media team sheets for every match, just being updated by myself on a matchday. Indeed when communicating with him at the end of last week before the Queen’s Park match he indicated he was fine and perhaps hoped to get to a game before the end of the season.
He will be sadly missed here, and our thoughts are with his wife Elaine, family and friends at this time.
There will be a minute’s silence ahead of our match (live on TV) v Arbroath tomorrow
