at the end of the 2009 season.

When Mal and Judy’s boys joined Oatley RSL Football Club, so did they. This is how it came to be with both of them becoming hands-on parents. Starting off as a Team Manager and attending meetings and before too long Mal became ensconced on the committee.

During his time on the committee he held many positions: – Club Delegate, Age Co-ordinator for either the under 6s or under 7s, Gear Steward, Canteen Manager are but just a few of the positions that he held.

Mal was the kind of person to help out anywhere at any time of the day, he is what we considered to be an integral team player and indeed an all-rounder throughout the years!

Mal had his way with people of all ages and certainly made the newcomers to the club feel very welcome. Mal was always keen to get them on board to join the committee, etc. Mal really was a great friend to us all and a pleasure to be around.

It gives us great pleasure to present this award in “Memoriam” to July his wife, and Stephen and Peter his children for the commitment, support and friendship that Mal had bestowed on us all throughout the years at the Club.

There are some we meet in passing
And forget as soon as they go
There are some we remember with pleasure
And feel honoured and priviledged to know
You were that kind of person
Who leaves beautiful memories behind
And there will be many days
Which will bring fond memories to mind

Your friends from Oatley RSL Football Club – 2010
