A dad is auctioning a rare piece of Dons memorabilia to raise funds for Aberdeen children’s hospital.
Euan Duthie is selling an autographed shirt from the testimonial of Dons legend John McMaster.
Proceeds from the online auction will go to help the ARCHIE Foundation’s Beards for Bairns campaign.
The shirt from the 1985 game comes complete with signatures from a host of heroes from the club’s golden era.
The shirt was winger Peter Weir’s and has been autographed by Willie Miller, John Hewitt and Alex McLeish, among others.
Euan, 46, wants to help Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital (RACH) after seeing the work they did to help his five-year-old son, Cameron.
“When he was about six-to-nine months old, we had cause for him to stay at RACH for a few nights. A few months later again, it was another few nights, he had reflux and it was a worrying time for us.
“I spent a fair bit of time there and I got speaking with the nurses and they were understaffed and everyone wanted a bit of their attention.
“They really were fantastic, they were a total godsend, really fantastic. Some of the things you hear and see, you never forget. They’re unsung heroes.”
That experience affected Euan, from Inverurie, and he was determined to raise funds for the hospital. He has taken part in the Beards for Bairns fundraising initiative for a number of years now.
The charity raises money by getting men to grow their facial hair between Christmas Day and January 25.
But a friend, who originally won the shirt in a raffle in 1985, gave him the Dons shirt to auction off for the good cause.
And he has taken to social media to drive up the price getting in touch with well-known Dons fans.
The current highest bid sits at £1,000 but he is hoping for a few more big offers before the auction ends on Sunday.
He said: “I thought I would get a decent price for it, I wasn’t sure I would get four figures.”
Bids are to be submitted on Twitter to Euan, at @DuthieEuan.
The deadline for offers is 8pm on Sunday.
