Cliftonville Football Club were this weekend saddened to learn of the loss of former player Mickey McDonald.
A striker who scored 39 goals in 158 appearances for the Reds, Mickey made his debut in an Irish League encounter with Ballymena United in January 1983 before signing off in a home game against Glentoran in April 1990.
Formerly with Glenavon and a keen GAA star who represented St Paul’s and County Armagh, Mickey was also captain of Silverwood Golf Club but never quite reached the heights of his nephew Rory McIlroy in that particular sphere.
All at Cliftonville extend our sympathies to the McDonald family circle and Mickey’s many friends at this difficult time. May he rest in peace.
