Irish League grieving the loss of cherished club stalwarts

 

By Graham Luney

Irish League football is mourning the loss of two much-loved characters following the passing of Carrick Rangers legend George Matchett and Crusaders secretary Harry Davison.

Matchett lifted the Irish Cup as Carrick captain after the historic success over Linfield in 1976. He was an inspirational figure during that golden period for the club as the Gers won four B Division Championships and back-to-back Intermediate Cup crowns in 1976 and 1977, as well as that incredible Irish Cup triumph.

George began his career at Linfield and progressed to Bangor before joining Carrick in 1972. He remained there until the end of the decade and ultimately finished his playing career at Moyola Park.

A Service of Thanksgiving for George will be held at 10.30am tomorrow in Church Of The Annunciation, Knocknagoney, followed by committal in Roselawn cemetery.

Affectionately known as 'Harry D', Davison was hugely respected at Seaview, where his service spanned more than 30 years.

His dry wit made him popular with everyone, including the players who loved him, and there was respect and admiration for his work throughout the Irish League.

Winger Gavin Whyte, who is with Northern Ireland on the tour of Central America, tweeted: "Shocked to hear the passing of Harry D what a man you will be missed! RIP".
