Allan Grady is living at Yarravel on the NSW North Coast with his wife Bev, daughter and two grandsons.
He was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer, which has developed further complications, and he has been fighting the dreaded disease for a few years.
His spirits were greatly lifted recently by a visit to his home by Men of League North Coast and rugby league greats, Ian Martin (former Manly-Warringah fiveeighth) and Jim Murphy (former Western Suburbs forward). He was certainly appreciative of the visit and the support they offered.
Allan had a distinguished league career, starting with Burwood United juniors, then Liverpool B and C grades and Southern Districts’ President’s Cup. He then moved to the Central Coast in his position as physical education officer at Mount Penang Boys Centre. During his time on the Central Coast, Allan played league, with Woy Woy and Gosford (1965- 1968) and also for Lakes United in the Newcastle competition. He holds two outstanding records, having scored 25 tries in 1965 and 10 tries in one game against Erina. Men of League thank Allan for his dedication and contribution to the game and wish him and his family all the very best for the future. Dennis Tomsett, Central Coast publicity officer.
