    John Ritchie

    I just read that Arbroath's GK coach John Ritchie has passed away.

    Was he not at Hibs for a while?

    He certainly coached us, don't think he played for us. Very sad regardless.....

    He was goalkeeping coach at Hibs for a few years as well as organising a lot of the community coaching events during the school holidays. I'm sure a lot of people around about my age will remember attending the various courses he ran.

    I think it was about this time last year that he passed away.

    I didn't realise that, I just saw Dick Campbell speaking about him regarding Arbroath's title win.
