Sadly we have to report the passing of our former player, Gerry Higgins. Together with the late Bertie McMinn, Gerry joined the club in 1978 from Distillery. A skilful player with an eye for goal, over the next two seasons Gerry went on to make 64 appearances scoring 19 goals. In 1979 Gerry was part of the Glenavon team that came close to eliminating top Belgium side Standard Liege in the UEFA Cup.

Our sympathies are sent to his wife Olivia, sons Gareth and Paul, daughter Lisa and all the family circle at this very sad time.
