Scorpions Elite 8 Medal – Boland Trophy

Scorpions are pleased to announce the introduction of our Boland Trophy. These are awarded to our Elite 8 Scorpions Medal male and female players. Mark Boland first became involved with Touch Football when he was just 13 years of age.  Mark played in 17 straight State Cups with his beloved Parramatta in which he won 12 titles. He represented NSW from 1985 to 1999 in Men’s Open and was captain of Sydney Scorpions Men’s Open team from 1996 – 1999.  At this time Scorpions won the first 4 NTL titles in the Men’s Open division.  He is the only player to have received a NSW Touch Association life membership whilst having his famous number eight playing shirt retired. Mark also played in four World Cup’s representing Australia between 1986-1999 – with a total of 37 appearances.  He was inducted into the Touch Football Australia Hall of Fame in 2003.  Scorpions would like to thank Mark for being at our Scorpions dinner and presenting this year’s Boland Trophies to Daniel Barton and Emma Williams.
