It’s is with great sadness that the club announces the passing of Talbot legend Bert Ferguson who was so instrumental in the rise of Auchinleck Talbot during the Willie Knox era. Bert had played senior with Ayr, St Mirren and Stranraer before turning Junior. He was capped for Junior Scotland when playing for Talbot and scored many vital goals to help the club gather their impressive haul of trophies.

Every Talbot supporter who watched Bert in the famous gold and black will have their own special memories of him. The best was undoubtably when he scored a screamer against Annbank and turned to the crowd and shouted “Just call me Zico”

The club would like to pass on their condolences to Bert’s family, and to let them know he will never be forgotten at Beechwood Park.
