Everyone at the club was saddened to hear that former Diamonds stalwart Billy Reid passed away earlier today.
Billy joined the club from Motherwell in 1961, having spent six years at the Fir Park club alongside younger brother Sammy.
He served Airdrieonians for seven years, featuring as a distinguished inside forward, before going on to fulfil a number of roles behind the scenes with the club.
Former Diamonds boss Bobby Watson told airdriefc.com: “Billy had a long connection with Airdrie, and he gave his whack for the Diamonds.
“He was a great scout and coach alongside folk like Ian McMillan, Bobby Morrison, Dan McAlindon and Wilson Humphries.”
Our thoughts are with Billy’s wife Joan and his family and friends at this sad time.
