It was with great sadness that Ross County Football Club learned of the passing of John Fleming, Head of Referee Operations with the Scottish FA. John was a highly valued member of the Scottish FA and was a well-respected official across the game.
On the news, Chairman Roy MacGregor said “Everybody in Scottish football is deeply saddened to hear of John’s passing. John was a great asset to the Scottish game and will be sorely missed not just within the Scottish FA but within the Scottish game and wider afield also. John was always approachable and was committed to the game, which made everybody very much admire John as a person. On behalf of everybody here at Ross County FC, we send our thoughts to this Family & Friends at this difficult time and we hope it will give them great comfort in reading and hearing how highly thought-of John was across Football.”
