Broughty Athletic are saddened to hear the news that committee member Alex Middleton sadly passed away at the weekend.

Alex, who was a former goalkeeping coach at the Fed, had been with the club for near on twenty years in various capacities turning his hand to anything the club needed to be done, helping out on matchdays from getting the kit ready, cutting the pitch grass, serving tea and coffees, gathering the practise balls, you name it and Alex would do it for the love of football and the club.

His loyalty and passion for the Fed were second to none, come storms, winds, rain, snow, Alex would turn up at every training session two nights during the week across town wherever training would be as well as travelling to every home and away game with the Fed on the team bus.

He was an absolute gentleman to know and be around, a great fan of the club and a great great guy to all that knew him in and around the Junior football scene, especially all those connected to BAJFC. He will be sorely missed…

RIP Alex from all at BAJFC
