After each home game we publish a brief biography of one of our Life Members. This week we are proud to add Dave McKissock to our Life Members page.

 

Dave was born in 1923 in Kilmarnock, Scotland. He joined Petone in 1949 after a season with Railways, in which he had also played four games for New Zealand against Australia. He became captain of Petone from the inside right position, where his slightly built frame (1.7 m and 60 kgs), tricky footwork, and body swerve created difficulty for defences.
