Calum Fletcher

All at the club were saddened to learn of the passing of supporter Calum Fletcher earlier this week, aged 87.

Calum and his son Stuart first went to Shawfield together in 1977. Calum had stopped going to football in the late 1950s but that changed when Stuart was old enough to go to games. Being local in Rutherglen, Shawfield was handy for them to attend, and that’s when their love affair with Clyde began.

Football, especially Clyde, played a big part in Calum’s life and he rarely missed a game. Along with Stuart he was always happy to drive to wherever Clyde were playing, including long trips north to Inverness and Dingwall. Calum was also an avid football programme collector and through the years had gained a rather large collection much to the dismay of his wife!

On leaving Shawfield, to Firhill and Hamilton and eventually reaching Broadwood, Calum had become an Executive Club member. He thoroughly enjoyed the company of the other members with the chatter and banter always welcome when things on the park weren’t as good. In the early years at Broadwood he worked within the Club Shop and was always on his toes to get into the stand for the start of the match, so he didn’t miss any action!

As the years went on, he also began to travel with the Castlemilk Supporters Branch. Unfortunately, due to health Calum had not been to games for a few years but he was always still happy to talk about the games and the grounds he had visited.

The thoughts and condolences of all at the club are with Calum’s children Stuart and Aileen, and his four grandchildren, at this sad time. They would like to thank the many supporters who have messaged and personally given their condolences at the passing of Calum.
