Remembering Jim Dobbin

Dec 3, 2023 | All News

It was much sadness this morning that the club learned of the passing of Jimmy Dobbin.

Jim was a former goalkeeper at the club in his younger days and went on to serve in a number of different roles off the field in more recent years and decades.

For many years, Inver Park was adorned with much of his signwriting as he added sponsor’s logos and details around the perimeter wall, something which was seen by thousands of home and away fans.

Jim also took up the role as board member in the 2010’s and continued to be a ready and willing help to his hometown club in a variety of capacities.

Club chairman Gareth Clements led the tributes, saying: It was a really sad and sombre morning for the football club and the town with the news of the passing of Jimmy D as he was affectionately known.

“From a young player to Santa, Meeter and Greeter, and everything in between, Jim Dobbin had a lifetime affiliation to the club.

“He had a life well lived and a life that touched so many people through years of charitable work and putting smiles on faces. My thoughts and prayers are with Frankie, Mark, Gleave, and the entire family circle at this really difficult time.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim’s family circle and closest friends at this time.
