Dundonald Loses Another Great
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we sadly announce the passing of another Bluebell great, Jock Bradford.
Affectionately known in the kop as "Auld Brady", Jock supported the Bell through thick and thin and was an ex-comittee member and was also a team mascot at one point. (so I'm told by Drew).
There's been many a ref who felt Jocks wrath at mooreside and numerous occasions when the air was blue to say the least!
Jock also enjoyed social evenings in the clubhouse with family and friends and the photo is of Jock cutting the ribbon on the official opening of the club house extension a few years back and was always generous with donations.
The clubs extends its deepest condolences to Jocks family, friends and loved ones at this extremely difficult time.
R.I.P. JOCK, GBNF💙💙💙
OH THE BLUEBELLS ARE BLUE

Any donations would be greatly appreciated, in what is now a very hard time for the club financially. however we fully understand that under present circumstances this may not be possible. We would urge you to only give if you feel you can.

A Bluebell man who was known in football circles far and wide.

Dundonald Granted Full SFA Membership
FULL MEMBERSHIP GRANTED WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT
This morning Dundonald Bluebell FC received confirmation from the Scottish Football Association that the club has been granted full SFA membership with immediate effect.
In what has been a roller coaster journey over the last 12 months as the club moved from Junior football to the EOSL we hope that seeing the Bluebell participate in the William Hill Scottish Cup next season will be a reward for all the hard work and dedication we have undertaken getting the club accredited.
The dedication and hard work not only of the current Bluebell committee but the community and people of the Cardenden area is testament to the work ethic surrounding the village.
We completed all works required within 6 months which is a truly remarkable achievement. There are too many people who helped to list individually but I would just like to say a big thank you. You all know who you are.
A special thank you to local businesses and organisations Brian Johnston Chemist, Ore Valley Housing Association and Rogerson Plumbing and Heating as without there help and expertise this would not have been possible.
The club now look forward to new SFA president Rod Petrie attending an up and coming match to present our membership certificate. Details on this will follow.
