Glenavon is sorry to learn of the passing of former player Peter Horn.

Born in Scotland, Peter had a trial with Everton in his youth. He made his name in Amateur League football with Standard Telephones before joining Glenavon in February 1975. He was new player-manager Alan Campbell’s first signing.

During four seasons at Mourneview Park, Peter made 59 appearances (including 10 as substitute). He found the net 22 times. He was the club’s top scorer during the 1975-76 campaign with 14 goals. In September 1975 he scored the winner in an unlikely Gold Cup first round victory against Linfield at Windsor Park. Two years later he was a member of the squad which played Dutch giant P.S.V. Eindhoven in the U.E.F.A. Cup first round.

In November 1977 Peter returned to Standard Telephones. Apart from a brief spell with Cliftonville, he finished his career with the Mallusk outfit.

Sincere condolences are extended to the Horn family.
