Perth football is mourning the loss of one of its most dedicated servants and greatest personalities following the death of Ken Drummond.
Ken was one of the founding members of Letham Football Club back in 1960 and had been club president for many years.
During that time, thousands of Perth boys and girls and their families benefited from the club he helped create and his guidance and warm personality.
He was a tireless supporter of grassroots sport and had a vision to enable as many young people as possible to enjoy the benefits of exercise and sports.
His legacies will include one the biggest and best sports clubs in Perthshire and the 3G pitches he fought to create at Seven Acres, which will benefit the community for generations.
A spokesperson for the club said the loss to the Letham family and to hundreds of local families was hard to articulate.
He said: “It is with deepest sadness that we must report that our club president, Ken Drummond, has passed away.
“Ken has been at the heart of the club since he and three friends established Letham in 1960.
“It was his passion for grassroots football that led to his dream to have a 3G pitch at Seven Acres.
“His years of dedicated service to the club and grassroots football in general cannot be adequately described in words.
“This is a massive loss for the Letham family, which will be keenly felt by the thousands of young people and their families who have been part of the club over the years.
“Our thoughts are with Elsa and all of Ken’s family at this difficult time.
“Letham will stand forever as Ken’s legacy and one which his family can take great pride and comfort in.”
