Remembering Dylan

SOCCER : Barclays Premier League - West Ham United v Crystal PalaceDylan Tombides

8 March 1994 – 18 April 2014

Today we remember the short life of Dylan Tombides who sadly lost his brave three-year battle with testicular cancer a year ago today.

We echo the words on the official website where the club declares: “A hugely popular figure among his team-mates, coaches, backroom staff, supporters and opponents alike, the Australia U23 international was loved and respected throughout the football community for his talent, his smile and his spirit.”

Dylan represented Australia in the U22 AFC  Championship where he helped the Socceroos reach the quarter-finals before they were defeated 2-1 by Saudi Arabia.

The DT38 Foundation, which aims to raise awareness support and awareness for testicular cancer, was launched last month – visit the website here.
