Sad news

Linfield F.C. records with sadness that 72 year old Jim Robinson passed away peacefully at home this morning.

Jim followed the Blues as a teenager before setting off for England in the 60s. Jim lived in Blackpool and Stoke before returning in 1994 and followed the Blues home and away until he was unable to attend the last few games through illness.

His last game was the County Antrim Shield Final against Crusaders. Thankfully, with the Ballymena game on TV, he was able to see his team go one step closer to another title. He was the eldest of 13 children. Thoughts and deepest sympathy are with the wider family circle at this sad time.

A funeral service will be held at Castlereagh Presbyterian Church on Church Road at 1:30pm on Monday.
