Our older supporters may remember the gentleman in centre of this photo. Some of our Committee had the good fortune to have a chance meeting with him at our away game v Ballyclare Comrades on 23rd February... It was an absolute privilege meeting with a genuine footballing legend at the Comrades match on Saturday. For those who don’t know him, he’s Billy ‘Bumper’ Cathcart, a tough tackling, uncompromising centre-half who played for the Comrades back in the late 50s before transferring to the legendary Gibby MacKenzie’s Portadown team in 1960 for a transfer fee of £400. He went on to play in the Derry City team that won the Irish Cup in 1964, beating the Glens 2-0 at Windsor Park in the final and then lifted the Irish League trophy in 1965. He also played for the Crusaders team that beat Glentoran 3-1 at Windsor in the 1967 Cup Final and retained the Cup a year later with a 2-0 victory over Linfield at the Oval. It was fascinating listening to this absolute gentleman giving us his own potted history of his football career and especially so for the writer who , as a 14 year old , stood on the Oval terracing , watching Crusaders beat my team in the Irish Cup Final. Hope you got the car sorted Billy !!
