30th June 2021
Everyone at Arbroath Football Club has been left saddened with the news that Lichtie Bert Cargill has sadly passed away.
Bert who has owned the Elliot caravan park for over 40 years was a “weel-kent face” throughout the town was a wonderful cherished friend, a lifelong supporter of the club and a long term sponsor of our players and club.
Unfortunately Bert had been unable to attend matches over the past few seasons but Bert was still kept up-to-date with all the goings on and scores thanks to his sons, Robert and Steven.
Arbroath Chairman Mike Caird said “Bert was an absolute Gentleman and a loyal and generous supporter of the club over many years. I have fond memories of Bert’s visits to the boardroom where we discussed the fortunes of his team over a small glass of sherry. He will be sorely missed.”
It has been a very tough time for the Cargill family, with Bert’s wife Sheila sadly passing away on the 2nd of May this year.
Our club is nothing without our loyal supporters, both young and old and we are sad to lose another Lichtie family member.
We hope that same family will gather round the Cargill family.
Bert is pictured here with the Ladbrokes League One Trophy on his 90th Birthday 2 years ago.
Our love and thoughts are with his sons Robert and Steven and Yvonne, Suzanne and Sophie and Nicholas and the rest of Bert’s Family and Friends.
Rest in Peace Bert
