In Loving Memory of David (Casper) Hansa

David Hansa (Casper) a great club man and a real favourite around the clubIt is with great sadness NH&AFC received the news of David's passing. David was well known to many of the Junior and Youth players as he frequently took interest in the junior player development and often joined in to help out with the juniors’ training. As a senior player, he will be sorely missed. His readiness to help out and put in 100% on the field during play, team support and at training, was and will be forever a testament to his character.  On behalf of the N&HAFC we send our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to David’s family and closest friends during this time of mourning.
