It was with great sadness that the club learned of the passing of John Martin last week.

John was a long time Ards supporter and a founding member of the influential North End Ards Supporters Club back in the early 1950s.

John was also involved with the Special Efforts Committee, served on many players’ testimonial committees, looked after the Red and Blue souvenir shop as well as being editor of the club programme for many, many years.

Although John’s allegiances were with Ards Rangers FC in recent years, he never lost his love for Ards Football Club, indeed, he was a regular attender at the Friday night quiz in the Sports Club.

Everyone involved with the club pass on their condolences to his son Paul.
