Thank You Gordon Scott

Thank You Gordon Scott

Yesterday the club announced that Gordon Scott was stepping down from his role on the St Mirren board.

Gordon epitomised the dream of many of us may had, from being a fan to being the owner of the club you love and support. Gordon has been a fervent supporter of SMiSA and all that it represents since the Trust was formed over 20 years ago. He was a regular participant of Saints Aid and always ensured he wore the No.9 jersey of the black and white stripes.

Gordon was an attendee at SMiSA events from day 1 and was instrumental in the 'Buy the Buds' campaign resulting in SMiSA becoming the majority owner of the club. This demonstrates how well Gordon understood what the club meant to the fans and more importantly how the club depends on the supporters.

It was Gordon who suggested "SMiSA" would be embedded in the lower level of the Caledonia stand at Love Street and along with another member of the then SMiSA committee re arranged the seats to achieve this, no mean feat!

Fast forward a few years to a Championship winning trophy, consolidation in the SPFL, transferring ownership of the club and ultimately a top 6 finish means Gordons legacy at St Mirren has been established.

All the SMISA members and the SMiSA board would like to thank Gordon for his lasting contribution.

The SMiSA Board will commence the process to elect a new director to the Club Board shortly, with more information on this published in due course.
