UNLEY OLD SCHOLARS FOOTBALL CLUB
Roshan came to the Rangers straight after high school and quickly became the go-to person for new players and club related questions. He is undoubtedly the most passionate bloke at the club and rides every win and loss like it was a Grand Final, whether it is him team or not. Over the years, Roshan has held several executive roles at the club and is the first one to put his hand up to fill up water bottles, help behind the bar and is always the first player to pay his subs or purchase a ticket to a social function. I can guarantee you, he is the only club member with our logo as his phone screensaver!
This season Roshan realised that we could have a stronger relationship with the school (Unley High), so he went out of his way to organise a charity fundraiser match between the Unley High XI and the Rangers at the end of the season. This acted as a great introduction to the club for the school players and we have already had strong interest from several of them to play in 2017. These are the kind of selfless efforts that keep our club moving forward and Roshan is the driving force behind it.

"I have known Roshan for many years through our soccer club. There is no doubt the Unley Rangers is a lucky club to have Roshan around. The amount of work he does around the place is un-matched. All done with a smile as well!"

Although I am no longer at the club I still admire his time and effort he puts in. You're a Legend Rosh"

"My fiancé Matt is one of the Ranger boys and a good friend of Roshan's. From all accounts, this guy is the gem of the bunch. A truely passionate man who channels his endless enthusiasm and dedication into Unley Old Scholars -and probably will until the day he leaves this earth! For Roshan to care so much about his local team and give it the heart and spirit that he does, is something to be proud of. We need more local heros like this man!"
Leigh Rowan says,
"Not many bigger legends than Roshan..."
