Harry died suddenly in October last year, from a ruptured spleen, the result of Epstein Barr Virus. The popular Pickers reserve player was just two months short of his 19th birthday

The Pickers’ reserve and open grade teams joined their Cessnock Goannas opponents and Harry’s family and friends in linked arms as one of Harry’s favourite songs Horses was played across the public address system.

It was a moment when you realised that the Pickers were more than just a sporting team, but a family.

“I felt very proud to see just how loved he was. Sport and the Pickers in particular were such a big part of Harry’s life,” Mark said after the moving ceremony.

“They have been fantastic to us in the support they have given us. His mates have just been terrific.

“They call around and see how we are and let us know what is happening.”
