Bonus ball draw for the European Painting : EvertonDate: Thursday, 11th May 2023
When Dunfermline Athletic were in their halcyon period and consistently appearing in Europe, season after season, much of their talent was home grown.
Kenny Mclachlan therefore came up with the idea of working with renowned football artist, Paul Town, to assist the new Dunfermline Athletic Youth Academy.
A group of his friends are working with him to see this become reality.
The Pars are already seeing the benefit of having local talent in the first team with such players as Matty Todd Lewis McCann, Paul Allan and Miller Fenton making great strides this season. There is also another crop of very able young players developing quickly as was shown by our young reserve team getting to the Reserve Team Cup Final just a few days ago.
We want to see that conveyor belt of talent be supported in every way possible. One of Kenny`s pals contributing to the ` Those European Nights` art project is Eddie Martin, Dunfermline Athletic`s mental health champion. Eddie works with Youth Academy coach Greg Shields who recognises that development of our young talent rests on not only good physical health but also on good mental health.
Now you have an opportunity to help because so much depends on funding for the Academy.
The first of twenty-two original oil paintings by Paul Town is being put on sale. This is Dunfermline Athletic V Everton. 31 October 1962. The European Fairs Cup. Dunfermline were one-nil down from the first leg in Liverpool. However goals by Miller and Melrose dumped the much fancied English team out of the competition. One of the greatest nights ever at East End Park.
