I COULD BE HAPPY HERE

It is not in mint condition, a few marks and had a few plays, I would say it was 6/10 for overall condition, comes in white and plastic sleeve.

The auction has been set up alongside an event at Dunfermline Athletics home ground to commemorate great Pars fans starting with singer songwriter Stuart Adamson of Big Country and the Skids. Below is further information taken from a press release by Stuarts son Callum.

When Kirsten and I were first approached about holding a commemorative event our first thought was to ensure that the correct location was chosen. There could really only be one place – East End Park.

Jim Leishman was contacted by fans who had raised funds at events since the recent Skids revival, Jim came back to us with an idea to involve Dunfermline and Queen Anne High schools art department and we were 100% behind involving them. We wouldn’t have actively tried to have a local memorial installed ourselves and had respectfully declined previous suggestions from various sources, none of which seemed suitable, until now. We also felt that if there were to be a commemoration, that it was better for us to be directly involved in order to establish something more personally fitting.

My dad was a Pars fan through and through. Having supported them since he was a kid, he considered himself exactly the same as the man standing next to him on the terrace, which is probably one of the reasons why he had such a good relationship with the Pars most influential fan, big Jim.

My dad’s love of football also extended to playing for local amateur teams over the years starting with Townhill and latterly with a team known as “The Fod” from Halbeath.

Several of his team mates were his closest friends and we are looking forward to meeting some of them again on the 11th. No doubt there will be some embellished re-runs of their escapades on the pitch.

My dad declined directorship opportunities at DAFC because he said it would change his Pars adventure. He wanted to feel the same emotions as everyone in the stands. It was with this thought foremost in our minds, that we began talking to Jim about how we would like to make sure that other fans, past, present and future are honoured similarly.

Knowing that the club tirelessly raise funds for D.A.F.C. Youths we would like fans to participate in the Headshot auction, where they can bid to have themselves painted alongside the DAFC Legends.

Running alongside the event, fans will have the chance to bid for some rare items which will benefit three charities. The main item is a signed Epiphone Les Paul guitar given to Kirsten from The Edge of U2 to help musicians affected by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

Other items include a small collection of my dad’s photographic art. Not many people know that he had a passion for photography, particularly in the late 70’s and early 80’s. We have chosen a few we think are quite special and interesting as we want to raise as much money as possible for the other charities – CHAS/The Mary Leishman Foundation.

The acetate will come with a certificate of authentication signed by Callum and Kirsten Adamson.
