Future Pars Strips (designed by Canmore Primary School)

The Heritage Trust and the DAFC Schools Engagement Team visited Canmore Primary School to find out what future Pars strips might look like!

As part of the Canmore Primary School celebrations of their 40th anniversary this year, P2 and P3 pupils are doing a project on changes in fashion over this period. Teacher Maureen Shearer asked Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Trust for information about historical Pars strips, so Trustee (and ex-Pars stalwart) Bonar Mercer visited along with Wullie Oliphant of DAFC’s Schools’ Engagement Team.

Wullie explained how the strip had changed over the last 40 years and Bonar was asked some searching questions about his times with the Pars. The children loved having their photos taken in a selection of old Pars tops (even if they were a bit on the large side!) that had been supplied by Marvyn Stewart from the DASC Shop.

The pupils then designed their very own Pars strips of the future, and Bonar was given the difficult task of judging them.

On 11 December, Wullie and Bonar went to the school along with Craig Brown and John Simpson of the Heritage Trust, to present prizes to the winners:

P2: James Millar, Aimee MacDonald & Sofia Ross
P2/3: Rachel McKee, Cameron Hands, & Zak Cummings
P3: Brooke Walker, Ross Millar & Nathan Tait

Ross McArthur, DAFC Managing Director, said: “This is an excellent example of how different parts of the Pars Family are working together to further develop the club’s links with the West Fife community, and to encourage the Pars fans of the future.”

Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Trust Survey

We would be very grateful if you would support Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Trust (DAHT) by completing a survey about its operations, and future plans.

The Trust was established on 18 October 2014, by a Trust Deed, with the aim of preserving for future generations the history of Dunfermline Athletic Football Club and the memories of its players, management and supporters.

It aims to make this rich heritage available for public access. Due to a mailing error the survey has been re-opened and will run through March 2018.

PLEASE NOTE: After some problems we have resolved the issue and you can now complete the survey. We apologise for the gremlins in the system.
