Robert 'Bingo' Bremner (Photo: deveronvale.co.uk)The club noted with regret the passing of former player Robert Bremner aged 95.
 
Mr Bremner, perhaps better known throughout the highland league as Bingo, played for Huntly for a few years just before the second world war and in fact had his football career interrupted when the war started.After the war finished he did continue playing locally ,but in local welfare leagues. After retiring as a player he concentrated on building the family business in Aberchirder, before returning to the game as a committee member at Deveronvale in the late 1980’s and then as president in the mid 1990’s.
 
Bingo was a well known and popular figure throughout the Highland League receiving a warm welcome wherever he went.
 
Huntly Chairman George Clark said “I had the privilege of getting to know Mr Bremner when i came to the club a couple of years back and he was a regular visitor to Christie park when his first love Deveronvale were away from home or didn't have a game and indeed was a generous supporter of Huntly FC events through his long time friend Billy Walker.
 
One of the last times i met him was when he sat beside me up at Forres and despite his advancing years had a keen insight into the game pointing out where we were going wrong.He was also a popular visitor in the Christie park board room, and i know many will miss his cheery smile and graciousness”.
 
The club has decided to hold a minutes silence at the game against Deveronvale a week on Saturday, given his relationship with both clubs.
