The North Hobart Football Club’s favourite and most respected sons, David ‘Daisy’ Omant, has passed July 20, 2021. David’s passion for the North Hobart football club was never battered.
”David is a Life Member (1983) and member of the club’s Hall of Fame (2004) and for over four decades bled Red and Blue as an administrator for the club.
David began his foray into football administration with the Buckingham Under 19s (then one of two under 19 feeder clubs for North Hobart) from 1967-76.
He joined North Hobart in 1976 and served the club in almost every known capacity.
Without doubt David raised more money for North Hobart than any other individual in the club’s history and his love and passion for the club is legendary as was his work ethic.
His persistence and single-minded determination to do whatever he could to make North Hobart prosper reflects the passion and commitment that has existed at our footy club for 140 years and why we have been so successful.
David wore out many pairs of shoes tracking down sponsors and fundraising and played a critical role in the club’s off-field success which in turn resulted in premiership success in the 80s, 90s and in 2003.
David’s persistence and determination embodied, in every sense, the famous Never Say Die ethos of our footy club.
He was the AFL Tasmania Football Volunteer of the Year in 2000 and was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in 2010 for services to the community.” The North Hobart Football Club posted on Facebook.
