Sad News


Glenavon is saddened to learn that Ian Maxwell, one of its most fervent supporters, has lost a long and brave battle against cancer. This tragic news comes barely five months after the passing of William Walker Supporters’ Club stalwart, Moses Maxwell.

Ian, originally from Garland Avenue on Lurgan’s Lough Road, lived in Germany for most of his adult life. Nevertheless, he kept in touch with developments at Mourneview Park through the newspapers and social media and frequently made the long journey from his home in Cologne to attend matches.

A successful business manager, Ian was also a talented musician, singer and songwriter. Much like his father,Mo, in character and temperament, he was a popular family member and friend. He will be sorely missed.

Ian is survived by his mother Ann, brother James and son Jason.


Glenavon extends its sincere sympathy to the Maxwell family.
