SMISA special recognition award - Roddy McMillan

SMISA recently handed out a special recognition award to a man who will have made hundreds of young fans' dreams come true over the past 34 years.

If in that time you have been a match mascot at the current ground or at Love Street you will know Roddy McMillan and the fantastic job he does at every home game - from welcoming the child and their family into the club and making sure they have a wonderful day they will never forget.

At one point in the 90s he also looked after the ball boys at the same time as the mascots. He also assisted the club on the commercial side for a couple of years.

He sat on Campbell Money’s testimonial committee and was also in the group that put on shows in the town hall to raise cash for St Mirren and bought the club their first computers way back in late 80s .

The SMISA Special Recognition Award has only been out on four occasions previously - to groundsman Tommy Docherty, former head of youth David Longwell, ex-player Hugh Murray and former announcer Phil Clark. 

Roddy should have in fact won this a long time ago and for that we humbly apologise. He is pictured at half-time during the recent Falkirk game alongside SMISA’s Jim Cumming, who presented the award.
