Coming Together for our Mate, No.8
St Pats FC honoured our Mate No.8 on Sunday, 17th March 2019. The jersey from Division 1, 2 & O35 Men was retired from the Club with Tony Iverson the last player to have worn this number in our top-age division teams.
It was a moving day for the Club with all teams wearing black armbands in memory of Tony and we give thanks to the Iverson family for allowing our Club to pay tribute to to Tony in such a special way.
Just after 12 noon both games stopped and a minutes silence, Club wide, was observed by players, officials and spectators in honour of a Clubman who will never be replaced. We would like to thank the Albury Wodonga Referees Association for coordinating activities during the day, along with the Albury United Football Club for participating in all activities organised.
At 3pm, the start of Division 1 Men, another minutes silence was observed for Tony were the jersey was officially walked from the ground for the last time by Lisa Iverson and family.
At St Pats FC we will continue to honour Tony and his contributions made to the Club and the football community around the region with the Iverson Medal to continue to be awarded to the Best Player of the season in the Division 3 Men. As a continued show of thanks and in honour of the Tony the Club has decided to keep the 8 in the Division 3 Men and award it to an outstanding player/individual who will proudly wear the No.8 for the season. In 2019 this honour goes to Matthew Green.
One Club, One Heart, One Dream... #stpatsfcforever
