It is with very deep sorrow and great sadness that we report the death in the early hours of Wednesday morning of former Newry Town/City FC Secretary and Chairman Billy McVicker.

Billy’s first administrative role in football was as Secretary of The Carnbane League and during the 1969-70 season when he was co-opted to a similar position on The Town management committee.

A short time afterwards he was elected Chairman, a position he held for a number of years.

He also represented the club at the I.F.A. and the M.U.F.A for a number of years and was also Secretary of the MUFA for a lengthy period.

Deepest sympathy and condolences to his loving Wife and the entire McVicker family.

Billy’s funeral service is to be held in Newry Methodist Church this coming Friday.
