Boys, 32, was presented the medal following Tech’s 2-0 win over Ferrymead Bays in the final at English Park on Saturday. The go-ahead for the new medal was given late last week by the Sumner family. Steve’s son Carlos Sumner was on hand to present Boys with the medal. “I only found out about it after the game. It was a massive honour to win the medal. I know how much Steve meant to football in New Zealand and Christchurch,” said Boys. The left-footed defender moved to Christchurch from the United Kingdom in early 2013 and has been a regular for Tech since then. He met Sumner briefly on half a dozen occasions. Sumner captained the All Whites to their first ever World Cup apperance in 1982. “I got to have a couple of beers with him at the No 4 Bar a few years ago. He always seemed like a really down-to-earth guy. He absolutely loved football and was always asking how you were Megan WOODS Member of Parliament for WIGRAM Constituents needing assistance or wanting an appointment are invited to contact me on: Phone 338 6347 Email: megan.woods@ Authorised by Megan Woods MP, Shop 8/12 McCarthy Street, Christchurch MVP: Danny Boys (left) is presented with the inaugural Steve Sumner Medal by Steve’s son Carlos Sumner.

Tech went on to win the match 2-0 with Lyle Matthysen scoring in the second half. “I thought Aaron Clapham was going to take it, so when he offered it to me I made the most of it,” said Boys.
