The Hills District Bulls will this Sunday pay tribute to one of their most-loved club and team-mates, Nathan Gremmo, who tragically passed away recently following a car accident.
The lively teenager, a member of the under-14s/2s Hills District Bulls side, left a big impression on all of those he encountered in his short life.
“Nathan had a great sense of humour and would do absolutely anything for anybody,” former Bulls president and current Sydney Shield assistant coach Mark Mahoney said.
“When I personally think of Nathan, I think of a young guy with enormous respect for people, and not just adults but his own peers and younger kids as well. People just flocked to him.”
This Sunday the club will pay tribute to Nathan when the Bulls and Guildford Owls meet for the Inaugural ‘Nathan Gremmo Shield’ in round 10 of the Sydney Shield competition.
Thousands are expected to flock to Crestwood Oval to pay their respect where they will celebrate the life of Nathan, a hugely proud young Gremmo and Bull.
The club will wear black armbands this weekend as a mark of respect for Nathan, as well as a presentation of the Nathan Gremmo Shield following the match.
“Without a word of a lie and without any exaggeration, the Gremmo family are the type of people that when people ask you about good families, they would be at the top of the tree every time,” Mahoney said.
“They are just quality human beings and the way they’ve handled themselves amongst this nightmare is just mind blowing.”
New South Wales Rugby League would like to pass on its deepest sympathies to the Gremmo family and his many friends.
