AN ARBROATH FC superfan shunned presents on his 80th birthday in favour of helping a local charity.

Ed Littlejohn, a proud Red Lichtie, celebrated the milestone birthday with a party in the Gayfield hospitality suite on Saturday.

He asked all guests to make donations rather than give him presents and a total of £553 was raised which will be donated to the Arbroath Town Mission.

Ed is a regular supporter at Gayfield, attending every home game and as a special birthday treat he was allowed to hold the Third Division Championship trophy.
