Tom Fergusson was known to many as “Mr Stirling Albion”, and he played a huge part in the development of Stirling Albion Football Club.  He served various positions at the club, as a Director, Chairman, Secretary and Manager.  Fergusson became involved in football in Stirling long before Stirling Albion, when he was manager of Kings Park.  When Kings Parks stadium got bombed during World War Two it led to the debt ridden club folding.

After the war Mr Fergusson, along with several local businessmen met to form a club.  They choose to name the club Stirling Albion, and is believed that “Albion” came from the type of Lorries Fergusson used in his Coal Merchants business.  Under his guidance Stirling Albion climbed from the C Division to the A Division in next to no time. After Tom resigned as manager in 1960 he remained a director until his death in 1967.
