Tributes pour in for Motherwell vice-chairman Dickie

Motherwell are in mourning after the sudden death of vice-chairman Bill Dickie.

The former President of the Scottish Football Association passed away on Monday night and the loss has shocked all involved with the Fir Park club.

"Everyone is absolutely devastated by Bill's sudden passing," Chief Executive Leeann Dempster told the club's official website.

"He was one of those characters that was so bright and bubbly; it has come as a great shock to everyone at Fir Park.

"Indeed, just last Saturday he was in and around the club for the Scottish Cup clash with Queen's Park being his usual self. He was being very positive about the team and the future of the club in his own unique style.

"It goes without saying that we would like to pass on our deepest condolences to Bill's family and close friends at this very sad time." Dickie was the Chairman of Motherwell Football Club between 2003 and 2008 and was one the longest serving directors in Scottish football with over 30 years of service.

Motherwell Football Club will host a tribute to Bill at Saturday's SPL clash with Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Fir Park.
