Rod Byers Memorial Football Game

Mike McGarry —

This annual event was rekindled in 2018 after a hiatus of several years.

The school compete against old boys from the Roslyn Wakari Club to celebrate the life of Rod, a teacher and coach of football for many years.

Rod's sister Jackie and son Mark were present for the game and presentation afterwards.

This year, school won 6 - 1 after a very close first half. Goals were scored by Ben Williams-Davies, Oliver Colloty, Will Turner, Finn Bielski-Cook (2) and an own goal. Oscar Black scored for the old boys.
