Football Northern Territory (FNT) is saddened to learn of the passing of Uni Azzurri FC player Remon Dolame (West Papua).
Remon, who was just 21, represented two clubs in Darwin, Palmerston FC (now Palmerston Rovers FC) and the aforementioned Uni Azzurri.
Remon was a key player in the Uni Azzurri Premier League Reserves team that took out the 2018 Premiership.
CEO of FNT, Bruce Stalder, said many people involved in football in Darwin are today feeling the loss of such a lovely young person.
“Remon was a respectful and talented young player,” said Stalder. “ his tragic passing has saddened all at Uni Azzurri and in the wider Darwin Football Family.”
“There will be a moment of silence at Uni Azzurri’s first match in the Premier League at the end of the month and both teams will wear black armbands to mark Remon’s passing.
“The thoughts of the FNT Board and staff, all Darwin players and coaches go out to those closest to Remon at this difficult time and that is, his family and friends,” concluded Stalder.
There will also be a moment of silence held in honour of Remon prior to tonight’s Super 7’s matches at Darwin Football Stadium.
