Former Linfield team mates of Dessie Cathcart and Life members Eric Bowyer and Alan Fraser extend their sympathy on the passing of their close friend earlier today.
“We were so sorry to hear the sad news of the passing of Dessie, our former teammate and true friend and a great Linfield player.
Our memories of Des will live with us for ever - his dry wit and a really funny guy off the field, as well as his ability on the field when he tortured defenders with his skill on so many occasions.
To Dessie’s wife Anne and family, our thoughts are with you at this really sad time.
On behalf of all Dessie’s former teammates”
Eric Bowyer (capt) and Alan Fraser
