                                          ALAN FRASER R.I.P.

OMU Club Patron Alan Fraser passed away peacefully at Kaiapoi Lodge in Christchurch last Wednesday surrounded by his family and was farewelled at a funeral service in Rangiora Monday.

Although his life came to an end in the South Island, Alan had a huge impact on the development of the world game further north during his time at the helm of the Auckland Football Association, as the organisation was then known.

He moved to Auckland from Christchurch in 1984 and became secretary upon his arrival, going on to lead Auckland Football until the turn of the millennium when the current federation structure was formed.

He contributed greatly during this period but will be just as fondly remembered in his native Canterbury, where his achievements led to him being awarded an MBE in 1978 for services to sport.
 
Showing a visionary eye from a remarkably young age, Alan founded the Canterbury Junior Football Association as a 19-year-old in 1952 after leaving Christchurch Boys High.

He is credited with establishing football in North Canterbury after starting Rangiora AFC from scratch in 1965. Just a few eager souls attended that first meeting but the club, now Waimakariri United, has gone on to thrive and now caters for male and female players of all abilities.

Alan left Auckland to spend his twilight years in the south with the rest of his family and could still be seen helping out in the Mainland offices once a week after his retirement.  He became President of the Canterbury Football Association and joined the Mainland Football Association board in 2002, retiring from that role in his seventies after 55 years as an administrator of the game.

He was instrumental in the development of Onehunga-Mangere United and will be sorely missed by all that had the privilege to meet him.

Alan is survived by his wife Loris and has many grandchildren who are carrying on his passion and infectious enthusiasm for football.

                      DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS HONOURED

Ten of Auckland Football's most committed volunteers were honoured on Tuesday with an Auckland Football Long Service Medal marking their invaluable contribution to the sport.

The medals were presented by Auckland Football board chairman Stephen Williamson at a function held at Onehunga Mangere United AFC’s Mangere Domain clubrooms honouring the outstanding efforts of; Paula Seibert (Onehunga Mangere Utd AFC), Helen Keegan (Otahuhu Utd AFC), Brian Stanyer (Mt Albert-Ponsonby AFC), Paul Mason (AFF Referees), Rick de Vries (Bay Olympic), Wayne Jensen (Manurewa AFC), Debbie Apanui (Bay Olympic), Robbie Cardwell (Otahuhu Utd AFC), Maylene Featherstone (Beachlands Maraetai AFC) and Kris McGregor (Bay Olympic).

Auckland Football CEO David Parker says Tuesday’s group of medallists serves as the latest example of the wonderful dedication shown by the people who make grassroots football possible.

“Our latest group of Long Service Medallists once again reminds us of the tremendous impact our passionate volunteers have on our game,” Parker said.

“Quite simply; without them we would not be able to function.

“The back stories of the individuals described on Tuesday are truly remarkable and, on behalf of everyone connected to the game in Auckland, I thank our latest group of medallists for their on-going contribution to our sport."

With Tuesday’s 10 recipients, the total number of volunteers honoured since the Auckland Football Long Service Medal was instituted in 2008 now stands at 67.

Congratulations go out to our own Paula Siebert who was one of the 10 recipients.

Paula has been associated with her club, Onehunga Mangere Utd AFC, for an impressive span of over 15 years.

A member of the Onehunga Mangere Utd AFC committee, she is always offering her services without hesitation, be it organising tournament days at the club, playing and managing the women's "Dunks” team or filling in when required behind the club bar.

Paula has been involved with the club’s Management Committee, who look after the actual running of the Onehunga Mangere Sports Club and she is also involved with the Onehunga Mangere United softball code, which is part of the club.
