Bruce Deas played 363 games for Hill Of Beath Hawthorn and scored 9 goals. His honours list with the Haws is up with the best of them, 5 League Championship medals in 94, 95, 96, 98 & 2000, a Scottish Cup winners medal in 1990 along with both the Fife & Lothians Cup and Fife & Tayside Cup in 1996. Numerous other local cup winners medals and invitation tournament prizes are also stored in the Bruce Deas trophy haul.
As a mark of respect, and in order to honour Bruce's contribution to the Haws over his 11 year spell, a Testimonial match against a Celtic Select was held on 2nd March 2003.
After the match, presentations were made to Bruce by both clubs and many team-mates and friends honoured Bruce with speeches.
