Pilbara News - - Sport - Tom Zaun­mayr

An­other last­ing le­gacy has been left for a much-loved com­mu­nity mem­ber who died play­ing the game he loved in Roe­bourne last year.

Bobby Alec col­lapsed on the field dur­ing Ngar­luma Yind­jibarndi Foun­da­tion’s NAIDOC foot­ball car­ni­val last year.

As a trib­ute, the cham­pi­onship cup un­veiled this year was named the Bobby Alec Me­mo­rial Cup.

It is the se­cond tro­phy to be named in his hon­our, with the Wick­ham Wolves and South Hed­land Swans nam­ing their an­nual NPFL grudge match tro­phy in his hon­our.

The Alec fam­ily has had a long his­tory play­ing for both sides and are a well re­spected fam­ily in the Pil­bara.
