Kirsty Mackie – a Sons Legend

September 15, 2014

KirstyLegendTHIS morning we heard the incredibly sad news that Kirsty Mackie, one of Dumbarton FC’s most loyal and loved fans, passed away unexpectedly this weekend.

The Sonstrust, along with everyone associated with the Club, send their love, condolences and warmest wishes to the family at this time. We are heartbroken with them.

Kirsty was a well known regular at both home and away matches, as her health allowed. She was a brave and wonderful person. She had just returned from the holiday of a lifetime in Australia and was looking forward to being back in Scotland and to cheering on her beloved Sons.

Our picture shows Kirsty with Club legend Lawrie Williams a couple of years ago. She was enormously proud of the pictures she had taken at DFC, with players and staff. Our message today is unanimous: “Kirsty, YOU are a Sons legend too, and we won’t be the same without you.”

As soon as we have details of funeral arrangements they will be relayed, as appropriate and according to family wishes, on this site along with the DFC site.

In the meantime, we invite people to leave messages of condolence and tributes here if they wish, and on Facebook.

    Cameron and I are greatly shocked and saddened at the sad news that Kirsty has died. From our short time connected with the club can tell you that we both liked her. She was a person devoted to Dumbarton Fc, we travelled to away matches and she was always there.
    A fitting tribute to Kirsty would be to hold a minutes silence at the next home match.We will not forget Kirsty.

    Still in shock, she couldn’t wait to get back from oz to see her beloved sons. I’m glad we chose her as the recipient of my Dad’s “Fan of the year” award in its 1st year, as she truly was just that, and was thrilled to bits when I announced her name. Thoughts are with her Mum, Andy and Scott at this terrible time. R.I.P x

    Shocked and saddened by the news that broke this nothing. Kirsty was a popular and well liked member of the sonsfamily who, health permitting was at the match on a Saturday cheering on her favourites. Any events the the trust or the club were running she was always one of the first to get her ticket and support whatever cause funds were being raised for. She will be sadly missed by all of us who new her especially all the guys n gals she travelled with on the supporters’ bus.
    RIP Kirsty 😢

    My goodness what a shock! My daughter Hannah and I send sincerest condolences to Kirsty’s family. Only recently she sat behind us on the supporters bus to Stranraer and was eagerly telling us about going to Australia. Only last week I saw her photographs from Australia on Facebook. Wee clubs like ours thrive on devoted fans like Kirsty. I can only say how sorry and sad the Ryan family are to hear this news.

    I can only echo the sentiments above, and I really feel right now for Andrew, Scott and Kirsty’s Mum, Christine. It’s not overstating things to say that after her family, DFC was the biggest thing in her life. As such she knew everyone and they her, and there will be many Sons fans with their own special memories of her cheeky and infectious grin. Win, lose or draw it was never far away, and the bus will be that wee bit quieter with her passing.

    God bless you lass.

    Really sorry to hear the news. Not much else I can say other than what’s been mentioned above, an away day won’t be the same without seeing Kirsty cheering on the team.

    Thoughts with her family at this awful time 😦
