Prior to yesterday’s Windsor Park League game, chairman Roy McGivern presented a Life Members ticket to the club’s former financial controller, Des McQuitty.
Des, who stepped down from the role around a year ago, was awarded this hugely prestigious honour, in recognition of exceptional and loyal service to the club over many years ago.
On a day when Linfield paid tribute to Donaghadee based Linfield legend Ken Gilliland who passed away a week ago, the club honoured another club stalwart from Donaghadee, Des McQuitty, with the special award of Life membership of the club which Des has served with distinction over many years.
It was a richly deserved award which Des was very appreciative of and delighted to receive in the Windsor Park board room before yesterday’s game.
Also in the photograph with Des and Roy McGivern is the club’s honorary treasurer Richard Johnson, a close colleague of Des over many years.
