The Bankies

About Us

Facebook Logo
The club was founded in 1975 and is the oldest Sunday amateur club in Scotland. It attained its name from the fact that most of the players and officials were DC Thomson workers based in Bank Street Dundee.
The original idea came from Ally Penman and Colly Bearn who asked John Brown to become manager.

The team entered the second division of Dundee Sunday welfare, gaining promotion in the first season also a cup final losing 6-5 to the then Sidlaw then the next season winning the first cup at Fairfield Park. More
