Memorial day

The Grass Boots FC girls' squad display their Rohan Bloom Memorial shirts before taking to the pitch for a friendly curtain-raiser.

MSB Nitros Events teamed up with Grass Boots Football Club in Vredehoek to host the Rohan Bloom Day – a memorial day for Rohan Bloom, a former Grass Boots FC player, who sadly passed away due to cancer earlier this year. The memorial day started off positively, with juniors from seven different clubs participating in a mini football festival at the Herzlia Sports Grounds, before a special memorial game, with some of Rohan’s former players and friends stepping out onto the pitch to honour him. Funds raised on the day went towards the newly formed Rohan Bloom Foundation.
