John Heron Passes Away

Ards Football Club is devastated to announce the death of club director John Heron.

John died yesterday following a short illness, aged 64.

Like his father, John was a lifelong Ards supporter who rarely missed a game. He joined the board of directors in 2019, serving the club with diligence and enthusiasm.

Club chairman Warren Patton said: "John's death has come as terrible shock to everyone at the club.

"He had a deep love and knowledge of all things Ards FC. He was also a keen artist and his fantastic painting of famous players from down the decades hangs in the home of most Ards fans.

"Our thoughts at this time are with John's wife Mary and the entire Heron family. Everyone connected with the club will miss John dearly."
