Dunfermline Athletic

Hall of Fame

The first event was staged at the Glen Pavilion in Pittencrieff Park, Dunfermline on 27 November 2004. Its purpose was to recognise some of the football club`s greatest heroes by celebrating their achievements and by including them for all time in a Roll of Honour.

They represent a wide range of personalities - from those whose skills were among the best ever seen at East End Park, to those who showed great leadership and courage. There there are those whose loyalty spanned very many years in support of the club they loved.

Not only have the events proved successful and enjoyable, but they have also been emotional occasions - especially in 2005 when manager and host Jim Leishman was caught unawares as he found himself nominated for inclusion.
