Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

CHARLIE GALLAGHER

Sunday 11th July 2021

IT is with very deep sadness that we have learned that Charlie Gallagher, a member of our legendary championship-winning team of 1972, has died.

The passing of the former forward, who was aged 80, has been announced by Celtic, from whom he joined Dumbarton in 1970.

He went on to play 95 games for the club, scoring 40 goals, 21 of which came across all competitions during the wonderful 1971/72 season which saw the club win the Second Division title.

Charlie retired as a player in 1973. He was also a full international for the Republic of Ireland, gaining two caps.

The thoughts of everybody at Dumbarton FC are with Charlie's family and friends at this very sad time.
