Name: Donnelly, Bernard
 

DoB: 14/04/1958, Glasgow

DoD: 28/07/1978, St Johns, Newfoundland, Canada

Born in Glasgow in 1958, Bernie Donnelly signed for Queen's in 1975 from Celtic Boy's Club. An ultrasonic engineer to trade, he quickly found his feet at Queen's and broke into the first team midway through the following season. Over two and half seasons he made 81 starts (with four substitute appearances) for the first team, scoring 27 goals, an average of once every three matches.  

Sadly, towards the end of a post-season tour of Canada, Bernie was killed when a car he was travelling in returning from a function to the team hotel collided with a tree and Bernie, aged just 20, along with David Ballantyne, just 22, were both killed outright, while goalkeeper David Gillespie suffered a broken leg and never played first team football for Queen's again.

Thanks to Craig Donnelly for the above information
