Everyone at Airdrieonians is saddened tonight by the news that Diamonds fan Mark Allison has passed away.
Mark was a well-known face in the Airdrie support long before his diagnosis with pancreatic cancer almost two years ago, but his selflessness after receiving such terrible news endeared him to many.
Raising funds for cancer research with his unique "F**k Cancer" campaign, Mark co-ordinated a number of events based around his lifelong passions for football, music and Adidas trainers.
He always ensured his efforts would have a positive effect on others, and was a leading figure in the installation of "Sammy's Shelter" at Excelsior Stadium following the death of Diamonds hero Sammy Conn.
Mark's campaigns raised well over £70,000 for cancer charities, and his legacy will live on within his beloved football club and beyond. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.
Rest in Peace, Mark. Diamonds are forever.
