Most people will be surprised to learn that Willie White, late goalkeeper to the Linfield Club, has passed over to the majority, dying yesterday evening. The funeral takes place today. We tender to the relatives of deceased our sincerest sympathy on their sad bereavement. By his demise Linfield lose the services of a first-class custodian.
