the Charlie Duthies
Playing catch-up with the Boardroom Hospitality from last season, we've a few to get through that have been hanging around the archives for a bit. First up, on Tuesday 10th April at Dundee's game v Queen of the South, and guests of Scott Glenday (Society Chairman and DFC Director at the time) were local supporters Club the Charlie Cooke Dark Blues. They were represented at the game by father and son, Charlie Duthie Senior and Junior.
Post-match, Scott said "I'd like to offer huge thanks to both of them and their Supporters' Club, the Charlie Cooke Dark Blues, both are top lads, loyal supporters and great company. Charlie Snr, as well as being a fan, is on the committee of the supporters of the club and is also a Director of Tay Taxis, a company who have supported the Club and the Society for many years.
"Young Charlie is a real down to earth guy for being the local celebrity he is. He also gives up his time at home games spinning the discs and making the match day announcements over the tannoy along with Stewart Brand who is trackside. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Adam and Andrew also at Wave, they too have supported the Club and Society and I want them to know it’s been very much appreciated. The number of supporters clubs we have is fantastic for a Club our size, as a group and as individuals the Charlie Cooke certainly play their part, big thanks to all their members including George and Billy, they would murder me if I didn't give them a mention !"Charlie Jnr told us "It was a tremendous touch to be invited into the boardroom and I felt very humbled seeing our club's amazing history on display."
