In the summer of 2017 we named our very first Arbroath Football Club Ambassadors, ATP World Tennis Star Jonny O’Mara and former professional golfer and legendary Golf Commentator Ewen Murray.

We have a wonderful and loyal support on the Gayfield terraces, but our Ambassadors help spread our vision and share our proud club on a worldwide stage.

We are delighted and thrilled to announce that local born and bred darts star, Alan Soutar is the newest official ambassador of Arbroath Football Club.

Alan “Soots” Soutar has been making incredible progress since coming through Q-school, turning professional and winning his tour card on the PDC.

Soots, who is also a fire fighter continues to play a massive part in the local community supporting many charities as well as running his own darts academy for the stars of the future. Alan burst onto the scene earlier this year defeating former world champion Raymond Van Barneveld in his very first televised PDC event and is currently sitting 79th in the world.

Arbroath Football Club Commercial Director Paul Reid spoke of the announcement; “We are delighted that Alan has joined our club as an ambassador, he is doing incredibly well on the PDC tour and continues to put our town on the map with his fine form and rapid rise through the rankings, he is immensely proud of his home town roots and we are equally as proud of his achievements as well as playing a huge part in our community, everyone at Gayfield is right behind him and we cannot wait to cheer him on in the World Championships next month.”

Alan said “It was a proud moment when asked to become an ambassador of the club, I am immensely passionate about the town and the team and to have been asked is a huge honour, its exciting times at Gayfield and I am really looking forward to being a part of that.”

Arbroath Football Club is proud to have fans from far and wide, and we are excited to announce the appointment of Alan as our newest Ambassador.

We hope to name another new Arbroath FC Ambassador very soon!

C’mon the Lichties!
