We are deeply saddened to hear that former club chairman Ian Maitland has passed away at his home in Spain. Ian, a highly successful Aberdeen businessman, joined the club as chairman in 1992, and later became an honorary president of the club, an acknowledgement for the outstanding contribution he made during his short time at Princess Royal Park.
Ian was a larger than life character, a kind hearted and generous man, who brought drive and ambition to the club at a time when things were badly in need of fresh enthusiasm, financial stability, and strong leadership. He had a cheery personality, and a lovely sense of humour, which made him a popular figure throughout the Highland League.
The club's thoughts are with Ian's family at this very sad time.
