It is with sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Janice (Jan) Hilton, wife of former life member Tony Hilton, who passed away earlier this week. The Executive Committee and club members extend our sincere condolences to Philip and Mary, Steve and Jane and families for their loss.

 

The Hilton family has a long association with Petone FC dating back to the 1950's when former life members Otto and Arthur first joined the club, and continued on to Tony who played a significant role both as a player and administrator for the club. Tony and Jan's sons, Philip and Steve, also spent a number of years playing for Petone. 

 

Petone FC's prestigious Hilton Petone Cup was donated to the club by Otto Hilton in 1952 and is awarded to the winners of the club's pre-season tournament each year.
