Everyone at Arbroath FC were left shocked yesterday and filled with sadness upon hearing the news that Ralph Coutts had passed away.
Ralph was well known and very popular in Arbroath, especially in the St Vigeans area where he had championed the clean up of the Nature Trail and surrounding area.
Ralph and Wendy Murray set up and led the litter project “Save our Seas” at Gayfield Stadium on match days. It had become a great success story and the club and the group were rewarded this season with a national award.
Ralph was a champion in life and he was inspirational in what he did for his local community.
A genuine good guy, he will be sadly missed by everyone at the club.
Our heartfelt thoughts go out to his partner Nicky and all the family.
Rest in Peace Ralph
