Farewell to Callum, Who Always Wanted Sons to Flourish

May 23, 2018


THE Sonstrust has conveyed its sincerest condolences to the family of Dumbarton director Callum Hosie, who sadly died of cancer last Monday.

Tributes were paid to Callum at his family funeral in Southport yesterday (Tuesday 22nd May 2018), where the Club and all associated with it were represented by vice-chairman Colin Hosie.

A full obituary and tributes can be found at the DFC site here and in the local press last week and this week.

Sonstrust Chairman Brian Payne said: “Callum had a great love of Dumbarton FC, and everyone associated with the Club is very saddened by his passing. We echo the generous sentiments that have been widely expressed over the past few days.

“We have been directly in touch with the Hosie family to pass on our condolences and best wishes, along with the DFC chairman, board and others.

“We are pleased to have received a message assuring us that the family are following Callum’s wishes in their continuing desire that Dumbarton FC should be in a position to thrive well into the future.

“The Sonstrust remain committed to that vision, and fans are currently working hard with the Club and the board, led very positively by new Chairman John Steele, to address our present challenges and chart a positive way forward.

“We hope very much that owners Brabco, of whom Callum Hosie was a director, will be fully supportive of these moves, engaging directly with the Club board and the Trust board in securing a ‘win-win’ solution for us all following recent challenges.

“We know that Callum would want no less for the Club and town he loved.”
