Glynn Price passes away
The St George Illawarra Dragons, St. George District Football Club. Players past and present, the St. George Leagues Club and our legion of Dragon supporters are today mourning the death of Club Legend and former long-term administrator, Glynn Price who passed away this morning aged 97.
Glynn came to Australia at the age of 13 from Wales. He soon fell in love with the game of Rugby league starting with the Arncliffe Scots Club in the St. George District in 1934 and later became Club Secretary during the war years.
Glynn subsequently joined the St. George District Club in the 1940`s and until his passing, never stopped serving and supporting his Club.
He became a committee man in 1946 and then Treasurer in 1951 holding that position until 1965.
During this time he was also appointed Secretary of the St. George Leagues Club, originally on an honorary basis and then full time from 1954 to 1977.
Glynn played a major role in the successes of the record breaking 11 Premiership run from 1956 to 1966.
Glynn`s name was synonymous with St. George, a life member of the NSW Rugby League and respected throughout the Rugby league world.
Glynn was recognized in the Australia Day honours last year when he was awarded the local Senior Citizen of the Year for Kogarah at 95 years of age.
Until recent times, he visited the Club on a weekly basis sharing a drink with his mates and reminiscing of times gone bye.
Glynn was the last remaining link with the management team of the 50`s and 60`s whose administrative skills transformed the St. George District Football Club into a Rugby league powerhouse, revered and respected where ever the game is played .
We have all lost a good friend and great mate.
Glynn Price will long be remembered and will always hold a special place in the history and traditions of St. George.
