Club to share memories of Rod Larnach over special weekend in August

Cambridge FC will host two special days in August to share memories of former player and Life Member Rod Larnach who died in May.

On Friday August 28, at 2pm, our clubrooms will be the venue for a memorial service for friends and relatives to remember and celebrate his life.

The next day, Saturday August 29, will be declared Rod Larnach Day at John Kerkhof Park to give the current generation of players, and spectators, their own chance to pay their respects to him.

Memorial service

If you wish to attend the Friday service, please RSVP and share any photographs of Rod by emailing This will help the family with their catering plans.

Rod Larnach Day

Rod was a member of Cambridge’s Northern League squad in the 1970s, having progressed through our junior sides which he first joined in 1957.

His father, Jack, was a member of the club’s committee and in the late 1970s, Rod became one of the youngest members of the club’s committee. He became a Life Member in 1988.

It’s fitting that we’ll remember Rod with a minute’s silence before the Reds play Beachlands Maraetai in their Northern League fixture at John Kerkhof Park.

The club will have four teams at home that day and we invite all those who knew Rod to come along to our grounds.
