Tributes to Robin Hulett

Ahead of our match yesterday against Carnoustie Panmure, we took the time to pay tribute to committee member Robin Hulett who passed away recently.  (See our main tribute here).  We also included in this time, lifelong fan Alex Marshall who had also passed away in recent weeks.

A minute silence was held that was impeccably observed by everyone present and for that we give grateful thanks on behalf of the families of these fans.

 

Robin’s Son-in-Law Sinclair Campbell was at the match today, and captured our tribute to Robin in the video below.  We have also collated all the comments shared on our Facebook pages and copy those below by way of further tribute.  Robin’s funeral will take place this Friday (2 March) at Falkirk Crematorium at 1pm.  All friends are respectfully invited.  Our thoughts and prayers remain with the families of our sadly departed Mariners.

Johnny Thompson: In a week when the youth football headlines are for all the wrong reasons, it’s sad to hear about the passing of one of the guys who made so many of us love football when we were younger.   During my time at ICI Juveniles in the early 80’s, Robin Hulet (along with the likes of Alex Christie, Oscar, Willie Gardiner, etc) made football, and being part of a team, far more enjoyable than it seems to be these days.  Robin you were (and will remain) a legend.
