We are sad to note the passing of one of our former players, Andy Higgins, at the age of 61.
Bolsover-born Andy was an apprentice in the 1970s and made one appearance for the first team, against Mansfield Town in 1979.
Andy was transferred to Port Vale and also played for Hartlepool, Rochdale, and Chester City. He subsequently played in South Africa before moving to Australia.
Despite the distance, he was a keen member of the Former Players Association. He recently enabled the association to contact fellow Melbourne resident John Roberts as he had worked with John’s son.
Our sincere condolences are extended to Andy’s family and friends.
