It’s with much sadness that Newcastle Olympic FC announce the passing of it’s former President, first Life Member, and committee member, Jim Papas.
After fighting a brave battle against a serious illness for close to four years, Jim unfortunately passed away early this morning.
Jim’s contribution and legacy in making Newcastle Olympic the Club it is, was immense. He was the driving force for close to 30 years in establishing the Club to where it is today.
To Daphne, his children, grandchildren and all the Papas family, our deepest condolences from the Club.
May he Rest in Peace
