Leigh Cooper and Tommy Tynan were among other former Pilgrims also present at the service held at Weston Mill Cemetery and Crematorium to remember Dougie, who played 22 times for Argyle in 1987-88. 

"We are always sad to hear of the passing of a member of the Argyle family," said club Chief Executive Martyn Starnes, "especially one as young as Dougie. 

“Many of his former team-mates fondly remember their days playing with him at Home Park, and the thoughts of everyone at Home Park are with Dougie's family and friends at this sad time."
