Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Trust was established in October 2014, with the aim of preserving for future generations the history of Dunfermline Athletic Football Club and the memories of its players, management and supporters, and making this rich heritage available for public access.

Although we share a common interest in the past, present and future of Dunfermline Athletic FC, the Trust is completely independent of the football club, with its own governance system run by Trustees who are all long-term Pars supporters.

The current office-bearers of the Trust are:

  • Chair: Duncan Simpson

  • Vice-Chair: Donald Adamson

  • Treasurer: Graeme Herd

  • Curator: Christine Scott

  • Secretary: John Simpson

See "Trustees" for the full list and individual profiles.

Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Trust is a charity registered in Scotland, No SC045532.
