James Parkinson – Prince Alfred Old Collegians Football Club Chairman
I am self-employed in the Sporting Goods industry, we are the S.A. and N.T. agents for Dunlop, Slazenger, Everlast, A.F.L. apparel, Trigger Point, Fila etc etc.
My family has been involved with the Prince Alfred Old Collegians Football Club since it was established in 1926 with my grandfather playing in the first team, my father captained the club in the late 60’s and now my son Angus is in his second year as Treasurer and has this season taken on the joint playing coaching role for the Division C1 side (C grade).
I became a life member in 1988 and are now Vice Chairman and Football Director.
Outside of PAOCFC in the 80’s I was assistant team manager for the League’s state team winning a carnival against the VICs! Great times!
The greatest thing about the PAOCFC is that we are in the truest sense of the word a family club, we are all one very large family, we take a great deal of pride out of the fact that we have 4th generation players wearing the Old Reds guernsey
