FAMILY and friends of well known Antrim sportsman Frank Corrigan have paid tribute to him after his death at the age of 82.
‘Frankie', as he was known, played in around 700 matches for Chimney Corner FC at their old ground in Riverside during a footballing 'career' that spanned almost two decades.
He was an ever-present for the Corner for no fewer than 18 seasons, first pulling on the jersey as an 18-year-old in 1952 before he hung up his boots 1969 when he was in his mid-30s.
During that time, he was one of very few players in Northern Ireland who won medals in the Steel and Sons Cup, the Intermediate Cup, the Clarence Cup and the Border Cup.
Frankie also represented the Amateur League on four occasions and earned one cap for Junior Ireland.
