Being active is a lifelong passion and New Zealand’s oldest football player, Ernie Hall at age 80 is living proof of that. He has held that record since he was aged 70 and been playing since his first game at age 7. The Onehunga Workingman’s Club also believe he could be the world’s oldest player too. Ernie practices every week and also plays Seven a Side in summer with his children and grandchildren. It is great to see an active elder living and playing their passion – what an awesome example for us all.  Read the full article here.
