Linfield FC records with sorrow the sad passing of lifelong supporter Jim Beggs, from Carnmoney in Newtownabbey.
His son Ian has asked that the following message and photo is posted here by way of tribute from the club his father loved.
“Just a wee note with reference to my dad, Jim Beggs, a life long season ticket holder and senior member. Dad sadly passed away suddenly at home on the 11th of July, aged 74. I can't begin to explain our loss, but he'll also be a sad loss to the Blues and all the wonderful caring Bluemen who he has enjoyed brilliant witty banter with over the years, during the good and not so good days. I've attached a wee picture of him which epitomises him. I'd be grateful if you could spread the heart breaking news.
AUDACES FORTUNA JUVAT”
The deepest sympathy of everyone at Linfield FC is extended to Ian and the rest of his family circle at this very sad time.
