Mark Whatley

Arbroath FC are delighted to announce that Club Captain Mark Whatley has signed a contract extension to remain at Gayfield for the new season.

Mark signed for the Lichties in the summer of 2014 and made his competitive debut coming on as a substitute in the 1st round of the Petrofac Cup.

Mark then made 44 starting appearances in his debut season for the Lichties including starting all 36 league games and both play off matches whilst scoring against Clyde in the League.

44 Starts, 1 substitute appearance – 1 goal

In the 2015-2016 season, Mark made 3 starts in the Scottish Cup, and a further 33 out of 36 starts in the League with one further appearance from the bench and scored goals against Cowdenbeath in the Scottish Cup and Montrose and East Stirlingshire in the League

36 starts, 1 substitute appearance – 3 goals

Mark again had another fantastic season in 2016-2017 where he started every game in the Betfred Cup (4), Irn-Bru Cup (2) and Scottish Cup (2) whilst starting 35 out of 36 league games and scoring against Annan Athletic and Clyde as Mark lifted the League 2 Trophy as Arbroath Captain.

43 starts – 2 goals

Mark entered League One with the Lichties and again kept up his incredible run in the team, Betfred Cup 2 starts (1 sub), Irn-Bru Cup (1) and Scottish Cup (2) whilst starting 35 of the 36 league games and also coming on as a sub and starting 1 of the 2 play-off semi-finals. Mark only scored one goal that season but it was a peach against Ayr United.

41 starts, 1 substitute appearance – 1 goal

Mark entered his 5th season with the Lichties again captaining the side and for the 2nd time lifted a title winning trophy as Arbroath skipper as Arbroath run away with League One!

29 starts, 7 substitute appearances – 0 goals

In total Mark has made an incredible 193 starts and 10 starts from the bench giving him an amazing tally of 203 appearances and scored 7 goals in 5 seasons with the Lichties.

We look forward to season number 6!

See you in the Championship!

C’mon the Lichties!

Steven Doris

Steven Doris

Arbroath FC are delighted to announce that 3 time league winner, striker Steven Doris has signed a contract extension to remain with Arbroath next season.

Steven, is the only player in our 141 year history to win 3 league medals with the club.

Steven has had a long history with Arbroath FC originally signing on loan from St Johnstone in November 2008 where he made 6 appearances and scored 2 goals.

Steven joined the Lichties permanently in June 2009 where he remained with the club until August 2012 in which time he played a pivotal part in winning the clubs very first league title in 2010/2011 as Arbroath won the 3rd Division.

The very next season Steven scored the goal at Parkhead which ensured a 1-1 draw with Champions at Celtic Park and enforced a replay at Gayfield.  One of the club’s best results in recent times.

Steven left Gayfield for full time football at Dundee but returned on loan for 2 games in December 2013 but unfortunately picked up an injury but did score a goal on his 3rd Arbroath debut!

Steven was Dick Campbell’s first signing as he took over at Gayfield in the close season of 2016 and again Steven played a pivotal part in Arbroath winning Scottish League Two.

Steven started the 2017 / 2018 season in great form with battling displays in the pre-season fixtures and Betfred games where his skill and determination was frustrating the Premier League Defenders he was up against.

Just as the league season was getting under way Steven suffered a cruel injury to his cruciate ligament which cut his season short.

Steven went through a successful operation in Edinburgh and worked hard in his rehabilitation and we were all delighted to see Steven return to the Arbroath bench in October 2018 and then the moment we were all waiting for when Steven came on as a substitute and scored against Dumbarton after being out for 406 days.

Steven won his third Arbroath League Winner’s medal as he picked up the League One Winner’s medal in May.

We are delighted that Steven will be continuing his Arbroath career.  A player who gives everything on the pitch for the club and a player the fans love to watch. 

We look forward to seeing him go up against defenders in the Championship!

C’mon the Lichties!

The first milepost is next to the Signal Tower Museum just yards from Gayfield and the other milepost is at the end Victoria Park where Kings Drive turns left and heads towards Seaton.

It has been a very sad few days for Arbroath FC with the passing of Tom Cargill who would have been a team mate of James during their time at Gayfield.
 
James, commonly known as Jim was signed in 1963 by legendary manager Albert Henderson and was at Gayfield until 1969. James also spent a season on loan at Brechin City in 1966.
 
James Captained the Arbroath FC reserve side that won the Reserve League in 1964 – A great achievement in our club’s rich history!
 
The funeral service for James will take place at Parkgrove Crematorium, Friockheim on Wednesday 22nd May at 2.30pm to which all family and friends are respectfully invited.
 
Our thoughts are with James’ wife, Marion and his children Anne, Lorna and Iain. James was also a father-in-law to Dennis and Kate and a very proud granddad of Callum and Hannah.
 
The thoughts of everyone at Arbroath FC and everyone associated with our club reach out to James’ family and friends.
 
The flag at Gayfield will be at half-mast on Wednesday as mark of respect for James
 
Rest in Peace James

Having successfully auctioned the Ladbrokes League 2 winning shirts in 2017 we learned some valuable lessons.
 
Bidders are advised to confidentially indicate their initial bid and the maximum amount they would wish to pay for a kit.
 
Also supporters are asked not to wait until the last minute to place their bid as some bidders missed out last time due to the large number of last minute bids.
 
This is the best way to ensure that you don’t miss out on the kit that you want to buy.
 
The auction closes at 6pm on Sunday 26th May 2019 so don’t risk losing the kit that you really want.
 
Please complete this information when you email or text your bid.
 
Which Kit and Number you Want –

Maximum Bid –
 
Supporters are invited to submit bids for the kit of their choice by emailing briancargill50@gmail.com or texting Brian Cargill on 07793-070168.
 
A confirmation email or text of your bid will be sent and bidders will also be advised if they have been outbid to give an opportunity to increase their own bid should they wish.
 
There is a minimum bid of £20 for each kit. It is more than likely that bidding will surpass the minimum bid.
 
The auction closes at 6pm on Sunday 26th May 2019
 
The previous auction in 2017 proved to be very popular and we are sure that the kits that won the club their biggest ever honour will prove even more popular.
 
This fundraiser will help the club to make the best challenge that we can in the Championship next year.
 
Thank you for your support last season and we are all eagerly looking forward to next season.
 
Good luck and C’mon the Lichties!
