It is with a very sad heart that Doncaster Rovers Soccer Club announces the shock passing of one of our Life Members, Nik Palamaras.

Nik devoted over 14 years coaching our junior sides with success and had the respect of all that played and were mentored by him.

A true gentleman, who would give advice to all that asked for it, offered encouragement and many humorous training sessions, to which all the kids would leave at the end with a huge smile on their faces.

Nik was awarded Club Person of the Year in 2008 and was also inducted as a Life Member this year (2017) and very deservedly so, for the countless volunteered hours he gave to our club. A fixture at Friday night games, the night wouldn’t be complete without a jovial comment from Nik.

Our deepest sympathies to his family and to all that were lucky enough to know him.

The funeral will be held this Thursday the 10th August commencing at 11.30am at St Haralambos, Greek Orthodox Church, Church Rd, Templestowe followed by the burial at Box Hill Cemetery, 395 Middleborough Rd, Box Hill.

Nick Trimmatis
President DRSC
