    I saw his first game against Falkirk, and many more including 2-2 at Ayr in the cup, when he saved a penalty in the dying minutes, to the delight of a huge travelling support. A legend and a gentleman, who would probably been capped for Scotland, if he,d been born Scottish. You have been a credit to Dumfries. Thanks for the memories. Rest in peace Alan. Condolences to the family.

    True gentleman. We will all be proud of Alan Ball and everything he has done for us . Always had time to speak to the fans , especially to a nervous 10 year old at the Locharbriggs Gala ( me) who he made his day . Latterly , I bumped into him at the Barracuda Club when taking my daughter to swimming lessons . Conversation was always Queens of course. A sad day , Alan Ball is the best known player who has and who ever will play for Queens . Legend doesn't do him justice.

    What about a minute of applause for Alan Ball at the next home game or one that suits ?

    Goes without saying that this should and will happen.

    Sure the club will be organising something for the next home match which will be the Dundee United league game on Sat 11th August.

    I'm sure Alan ( in knowing him) would like any advantage going for him. Show the passion that the young boys are doing now. Queens people - lets do it

    Nice touch by Allan's family with the request for the mourners at the service to wear Queen of the South colours

    An emotional but uplifting send - off for big Bally at the superb new Baptist Church in Dumfries which was jammed packed with
    100s of friends and fans many in the Royal Blue of Queen of the South. Many of Bally's team - mates from the 1970s were in
    attendance - Ian Reid, Chopper Dickson etc and many other Ex - Doonhamer players Billy McLaren, Ches, Stuart Cochrane, Giro
    George, Bill Sim, Kevin Hetherington, Ian Mitchell - the list goes on and on. Great credit must go to Bally's son Keith for a his
    outstanding tribute which fully deserved the loud applause from the mourners.

    Can’t add much more to that, asit was indeed a memorable send off for the Queens legend and nothing less than expected. Amongst the numerous former Queens men, it was also nice to see the likes of Ian McCall and Lee Robinson in attendance.
    Tribute number two to follow on Saturday.

    Sounds like a fitting send off for Mr QoS himself and great to hear of those former players turning up in numbers to show their respect for the great man.
