Sandy Fraser is offering Portadown fans a chance to grab a piece of Irish League history - as part of fundraising efforts to help the family of former team-mate David Mills.

Fraser was unaware of the death of Mills in 2012 until recent efforts to invite the former Ports striker to this season’s awards night helped him reconnect with the club.

The Scotland-born striker won a string of medals alongside Mills during Portadown’s highly-successful period in the early 1990s.

His desire to raise funds for the Mills family has led to a special offer by Fraser.

Fraser has donated his medal from the club’s historic first-ever Irish League title win and is urging the Portadown public to back the raffle.

“The medal is special but when I heard about Davy I wanted to help out his children,” said Fraser. “Knowing the Portadown public, I am sure they will get behind this event.

“The idea behind a raffle is to give every fan an equal chance at winning.”

Tickets will be available from Portadown next week for £1, with the raffle at the May 9 awards night.
