Trustees

Below is our current Board of Trustees

Lindsay Darroch – Chairman

Born and brought up in Dundee I have been a Dundee fan for as long as I can remember. I am a Partner with Gilson Gray, Solicitors and head up our Dundee Office in South Tay street. I am currently Company Secretary of Dundee Football Club.

I was delighted, in 2019, to be invited to become Trustee of Dundee FC Community Trust. I am very proud of the impact the Trust has had in our local community and will endeavour to support the Trust with its future progress to enable this impact to continue.
In my spare time I enjoy hillwalking and am looking forward to taking part in the Trust’s hillwalking club

Ally Galloway – Treasurer 

I joined Dundee Football Club in November 2021 as Bookkeeper and Dundee FC Community Trust in January 2022.  My entire career has been focused on finance and accounts, spending 25 years with a Fife hair salon and 5 years with a Property Developer, both of which I loved.

In the 4 months since I joined the Club, I have learned so much about the industry and inner workings of a football club and privileged to be involved with the Trust and the amazing work they do in the community.

Pam Rodgers – Secretary 

I joined Dundee Football Club in 2015 as Club Secretary, following a lengthy career as a secretary in an accountancy practice. I will always be grateful to Ian Crighton for making me aware of the vacancy at the Club. Working with the players I quickly built up a rapport with them and being keen to see them do well on the pitch, I became a dedicated Dundee fan. Although I took ‘early retirement’ in 2017 I missed the Club so much that I returned 6 months later and now work as PA to the Managing Director and Management Team.
Keen to help charitable causes when I can, I have sponsored children for a number of years now. I also help out a close friend when I can as a volunteer for CHAS. I was honoured to be asked to join the team at Dundee FC Community Trust as it goes from strength to strength improving lives in the community.

Gerard Dignan

I am 61 years old and semi-retired primary teacher.
I have supported Dundee since my early teens and began to record dates and results. Why? I don’t know.
This began to expand as the years went by into more and more details and I now have complete lever arch folders for each season including newspaper clippings from one game to the next. It has become a monster. But I rarely lose a bet.
I began to work on the turnstiles at Dens after my wife noticed an advert, just as I was about to give up attending matches due to lack of money after the arrival of Kara, my daughter.
I am now in my 30th year at Dens, but am now situated in the control room, logging communications on match days.
I am very proud to be part of the Dundee FC Community Trust and hope to do my best in this role.
