Life Membership Award

George O'Scanlon

At the 2021 Annual General Meeting a nomination was put forward to have George O'Scanlon recognised for his efforts with an award.

The vote was unanimous in favour of George being awarded a posthumous Life Membership Award.

Many of the pioneers of NZ football nicknamed George “The Godfather of Football in NZ”. We think his story has earned him the apt title.

Full award citation can be found here.
