Deepest sympathy

Cliftonville Football Club are saddened to learn of the death of our former player Frankie Wilson.

The Banbridge Town Manager passed away following illness this week and is fondly recalled for his exploits on and off the pitch throughout a colourful career which started with a two-year spell on the books at Cliftonville Olympic from 1990-1992.

A defender who also represented Carrick Rangers, Ballyclare Comrades, Omagh Town, Bangor and Crewe United alongside distinguished feats on the GAA field, Frankie enjoyed stints as Manager of Sport & Leisure Swifts, Lurgan Celtic and Bangor, while the 52-year-old’s role as Northern Ireland Schoolboys boss regularly saw him pass on his expertise to some of the up-and-coming young talent at Solitude.

Cliftonville FC extends sympathy to the Wilson family circle and indeed our friends at Banbridge Town at this very difficult time.

May he rest in peace.
