RedSox Manawatu.jpg 




With the merger of Red Sox and Manawatu AFC in 2006, Red Sox Manawatu has a very long heritage as it is comprised of most of the football clubs that have ever existed within the Manawatu region. The 2010 merger of Red Sox & Olympic netball has also contributed to this proud heritage.

To celebrate this history, to provide an opportunity to rekindle some memories and meet old friends, Red Sox introduced an inaugural Club 'Old Timers Day' on Saturday 4 August 2012 at the Red Sox Manawatu Clubrooms.

This event will be repeated on the 1st Saturday AFTER Queens Birthday Weekend each year

Saturday 4 August 2012
Red Sox successfully hosted nearly 50 past members for its inaugural Old Timers Day. Photographs, Match Programmes, Scrapbooks and Newspaper articles from previous years were on display and attracted close inspection and raised more than a few chuckles !

Coming out of the woodwork, Dennis Fenton presented the 'original' Easter Cup (which he kindly arranged repairs) which had been established in 1925 by St Andrews. Pictured with the cup above are: L-R Wayne Vercoe, Rab Toland, Dennis Fenton, Marty OConnor & Terry Richardson. The event will be repeated on the 1st Saturday AFTER Queens Birthday weekend each year
