We are sad to announce the tragic death of Amateur Football Combination chairman and AFA life vice-president David Goldring who died following a heart attack suffered during training with his club, Old Woodhouseians, last week.
David was a stalwart of AFA football having served as an officer of the Southern Olympian League, becoming a prime mover in that league's merger with the Old Boys League in 2002 to form the Amateur Football Combination. Even after four decades of serving on the Old Woods committee he was still an active member organising club tours and serving food after Saturday games.
David will be sorely missed by all in AFA football. A full tribute to David has been posted on the AFA website.
