Scottish FA President Alan McRae has paid tribute to Sandy Stables after the passing of the Keith FC honorary President.

“On behalf of the Scottish FA I would like to express my sadness at the passing of Sandy Stables. Sandy’s enthusiasm and passion for the game was infectious. A stalwart of football in the Highlands, he served Keith with distinction for nearly 50 years and was a respected voice in a variety of roles for the Scottish FA for over 25 of those. Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Sandy was a true one-off.”
