Stonehaven’s oldest amateur football team Stonehaven Athletic FC, celebrated their 40th anniversary with a dinner in the Station Hotel.

Guest speakers at the dinner were Gordon Smith, Director of Football at Rangers FC and ex Scottish international goalkeeper and now radio commentator Alan Rough who both gave entertaining addresses to the appreciative audience.

The history of the club was presented by five speakers, from Donald Mitchell and Eric Innes on the early days to Graham Cameron, Mark Campbell and Keith Stephen up to the present time.

Presentations were made to Graham Cameron and Tom McLellan in recognition of their service to the club over three decades.

Club President Jim Glennie gave the vote of thanks and in particular he thanked Andy Hall for conducting proceedings and the Station Hotel for hosting thre event. A collection during the evening raised £750 for the Mary Leishman Cancer Charity.
