I R GELLATLY - DFC CHAIRMAN - 1986

Another one of the Gellatly clan - this time it's Chairman Ian Gellatly, the picture taken at the start of 1986/87 season. For some reason the photographer managed to persuade IG to pose without his shades on. Quite a rare sight!!
I don't know how many Gellatly's there have been in total at the club, but I know the family have been connected with Dundee FC since at least 1944.
I'm not so sure either if their positions as Chairmen & Directors also included "owning" the club, but they have been on the board for many decades in the past.

GELLATLY WITH THE GOODS

This is DFC Chairman, James Gellatly, keeping a close eye on the Scottish League Championship trophy in 1962.
Wonder how much the club spent on Duraglit that year?!

DEE FANS OFF TO BRUSSELS - 1963

Here's a bus load of Dee supporters on their way to Brussels in 1963 to watch Dundee bang in 4 against Anderlecht! It's not often games like this crop up with us, so dosh well spent I reckon!
Dickson's who ran the football specials were based in Reform Street.

CHAAAAAAAAAAARGE!!!



Here's a couple of great shots of jubilant Dee fans invading the pitch.
The happy occasion took place at East Stirling on 2nd May 1981 when Dundee won promotion back to the SPL with a 1-0 victory.
The dark blues had around 5000 at the game, most of which ended up on the pitch by the look of it!
The invasion was caught on tv too, so here below is the commotion after the final whistle.
Looking forward to a repeat of it this season!!
Big thanks to JG
