Alan “Tally” Johnstone – A True Legend

The club are sad to announce the passing of Alan “Tally” Johnstone this afternoon after a short illness. Tally was a player, committee member, and President of Dumfries Rugby Club. Tally was a great prop forward for Dumfries and was a terror to the opposition, on the field and in the bar. To be in the presence of Tally in full flow was a sight never to be forgotten. A keen tourist he travelled the world following Scotland. Famously travelling all the way to Paris just to watch the first half! Leaving to get his flight home. Never without a bag of Moffat Toffees in his pocket and a twinkle in his eye he could cause chaos and laughter where ever he went. The picture shows Tally in his Presidency with some of the first team squad. The term legend is an over used term but if ever it applied to anyone it applied to the legend that was Tally Johnstone. RIP Tally from all at Dumfries Saints RFC
