A memorial plaque in honour of the former Chairman of the St George Football Association, Sokratis “Sok” Mallios, was unveiled at Ador Avenue Reserve in the Sydney suburb of Rockdale on Sunday, November 6.

The unveiling took place during the Association’s Chairman’s Cup which is a charity tournament established to honour Sok, who passed away on 6 December 2018 after a battle with leukaemia.

Present at the unveiling was Sok’s family including his brother and President of the Carlton Rovers Football Club, Peter Mallios; as well as the Member for Rockdale, Steve Kamper MP; the Mayor of Bayside Council, Dr Christina Curry; Bayside Councillor Bill Saravinovski; and the Director and Chair of the St George Football Association, Irene Hatzipetros.

A number of speeches were given on the day to remember Sok’s contribution to the St George football community.

“This Chairman’s Cup tournament is held in honour of my brother Sok to encourage clubs and players to support the day by forming a team and having fun while helping raise funds for cancer research,” Peter told The Greek Herald.

Besides the unveiling, there was also an All Age Mixed competition and an over 45 competition football competition for people to watch and enjoy.

The winning teams received awards and medals at the end of the Chairman’s Cup by Ms Hatzipetros.
