It is with sadness that we advise on the passing of Jim Birnie who played for the Broch between 1949 and 1960 over two spells either side of his National Service. Jim only missed out on a place in the team that defeated Dundee in the famous Scottish Cup match of 1959 through injury.
Jim turned 90 in April and his funeral is today. Our thoughts are with the family at this time.
Jim can be seen in the below photograph, extreme left in the back row.
