On Saturday he was named male volunteer of the year at the New Zealand Rugby League awards. Page 3 Page 17 Panther volunteer takes NZ league award • By Andrew King The 76-year-old played his first game for the club as a 10-year-old. He then went through the grades right up to premier level, mainly in the second row before moving to prop in his later years. He then started coaching junior teams taking a team from the 14s up to the 15s then to the 16s before repeating the process four or five times. At 59, he laced his boots back up and started playing in the master’s grade for Hornby, which he still does to this day. The award honours the commitment and dedication he has shown to the club for more than six decades. “I tend to stay in the background. I am not used to this kind of attention so it is pretty overwhelming. I am honoured,” he said.
