IN memory of the late Kay Parus, the Newholmes Football Association (NFA) are hosting a football tournament, which commenced on September 21 and will run until October 20.

All teams affiliated with the NFA will be taking part in the tournament.

The late Parus was an esteemed and accomplished Hillview FC player and served as the president of the club from 1965.

He was the founder of the Hillview Easter Soccer Tournament and also served in many sporting organisations in an official capacity; namely Northdale Cricket Union, Hillview Cricket Club, PMB District Netball Union, Northern Natal Soccer Board and Newholmes Football Association.

He was instrumental in re-affiliating Maritzburg FC in the professional league and was also a member of the South African delegation that received all international players during the 1996 African Cup of Nations.

Parus dedicated himself to luring the youth away from drug and alcohol abuse and secured the previous volleyball grounds on Newholmes Way, thus providing for the youth to engage in sport.

His vision was to create a sporting ground in Newholmes Way for the community, which was achieved.

His accomplishment and contribution to racial sport will forever be remembered.

The tournament will end with a presentation and a braai celebrating the event on October 20.

For further information contact the president, Bob Moodley on 083 601 7274 or Raj Parus on 083 775 4351. — Supplied.
