Club's tribute to dedicated journalist Victor very fitting

Editor's Viewpoint

Victor Gordon was not just a hugely respected journalist to all who came in contact with him, he was a legend in his home town of Portadown, where his dedicated pursuit of the stories that mattered earned him a formidable reputation.

And nowhere was that more evident than in his love affair with Portadown Football Club, which has decided to name the Press box at Shamrock Park in his honour. He may have been a fan of the Ports, but he was no sycophantic follower.

His loyalty was to the truth, and those who follow him in the Press box have a hard act to live up to. Sadly, Victor is no longer with us, but his reputation will stand the test of time.
