MOTHERWELL vice-chairman and former SFA president Bill Dickie left almost £1.5 million in his will.

The 81-year-old architect died suddenly in January after suffering an aneurysm, and papers from Glasgow Sheriff Court revealed the dad-of-two left a total of £1,463,705.

It has been instructed that his assets including his £97,000 Motherwell home and £21,000 Jaguar car, have to be left to his daughter Pamela and son, Douglas.

Money from a number of bank accounts and insurance policies were also left.

He has stated that his children were to receive half each with the condition they contribute equally to the financial upkeep of their mother Isobel.

Mr Dickie ended a five-year spell as chairman of the Fir Park club in 2008, and spent more than 30 years on the board.

Motherwell chief executive Leeann Dempster said at the time of his death: “Everyone is absolutely devastated by Bill’s sudden passing.

“He was one of those characters that was so bright and bubbly. It has come as a great shock to everyone.”

Mr Dickie also served on the Scottish FA Council for many years and became president from season 1993/94 to 1996/97.

His funeral was held at St John’s Parish Church in Hamilton, before he was buried at Airbles Cemetery.
