Vale Ken Clifford

September 1st, 2015

Northern NSW Football is saddened to hear that former Hunter Academy of Sport Chief Executive Officer Ken Clifford has passed away. Ken had endured a recent battle with cancer and passed away overnight. Northern NSW Football’s thoughts are now with his friends and family, especially wife Laraine and Stephanie, Jacqueline, Glen and Rochelle and grandchildren. We wish them well through this difficult time.

Ken was extremely well known and respected within the Hunter sporting community as both a participant and administrator and was the central figure in building the Hunter Academy of Sport to where it stands today. A former teacher and sports organiser at Wallsend High School, Ken led the Academy for 27 years until his retirement last year. Without his dedication and tireless effort, many athletes from across the Hunter would not have been afforded the opportunities they were given to pursue their dreams. For this Ken will always be remembered.

At this time funeral details are yet to be confirmed; however, Hunter Academy of Sports welcomes those close to Ken to contact the Hunter Academy of Sport Office for details in coming days. 02 4926 4892
