Lawrence Patterson, who played for Ards in the late 1970s was a guest of the club at the Ballinamallard United game.
Lawrence very kindly donated a large bottle of whisky to the club. This was his prize for scoring a hat-trick against Bangor on Boxing Day 1978 (Ards won 5-2). The bottle will be going into the display cabinet in the social club.
Ards were pleased to have Lawrence and his son-in-law, Neil Coleman, who works for NIFL, at the Mallards match.
