BAJFC Chairman and owner Gordon Deuchars has released a club statement after hearing the sad news that former player/captain had passed away. Read below what Gordon had to say…

“We are all saddened to hear the news of Lee’s death, for two years he fought a brave battle against Motor Neurone Disease.

From myself and everyone associated with the club past and present, we extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Claire and the family at this heartbreaking time for them.

In my 15 years at the club, Lee was a very well respected player in the Junior circles and one of the nicest, genuine guys to play at Whitton Park. He was very loyal, very committed, a great captain, a great player and servant to our club. On and off the park he was a true gentleman and a friend, he will be truly missed by all at Broughty Athletic JFC…”
