Tribute Night: We Did It For Norrie

On 15 January 1996, as the culmination of the events commemorating the 20th anniversary of Norrie McCathie's untimely death on 8 January 1996, the Heritage Trust hosted a night at the Carnegie Hall, with Norrie's brother Rab, 20 former players, Jim Leishman, Gregor Abel, Dick Campbell, John Jobson and Pip Yeates and an audience of several hundred Pars fans.

There is an excellent six-part account of the evening on the DAFC website.

"Part One".

"Part Two"

"Part Three"

"Part Four"

"Part Five"

"Part Six"

Every person who was interviewed on stage was asked for one word to sum up Norrie McCathie. Dick Campbell felt that he was talking for everyone inside the Carnegie Hall and chose five- We miss you Big Man.

The one word answers were:
Rab McCathie - smiling
Jim Leishman - wonderful
John Jobson - unforgettable
Gregor Abel - awesome
Jim Bowie - magnificent
Ian Westwater - tough
Pip Yeates - irreplaceable
Ian McCall - DAFC
John Robertson - legend
Stewart Petrie - inspirational

The Trust is grateful to the Directors, staff and volunteers of DAFC, who worked so hard to make the evening such a success, to Steven Mill and to the BBC's Brian McLauchlin for leading the event on stage, to the former players who participated and to the McCathie family for attending.

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.
