One of the Eastern Suburbs Football Association’s most adored coaches, Edison Bayas, will be honoured for the second successive year in the EB Memorial Cup this Sunday 13th of February (3pm) at the Waverley Synthetic Field.
Players and clubs from the local area will be looking forward to dusting off those off-season cobwebs all for a good cause to honour the memory of Edison Bayas.
Bayas was a well admired Youth Football Coach for over 14 years in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and the Inner West. Bayas’ passion for developing footballers was only exceeded by his ability to shape young footballers into young men and impart life lessons that transcend sport.
Bayas coached in the ESFA winter and summer competitions for the likes of Queens Park and Mascot Kings to name a few for over 10 years as well as various Indoor and 7-a-side competitions between 2007 to 2017.
In 2017, Bayas was unexpectedly diagnosed with brain cancer which shocked the community.
This Memorial Cup is to remember Edison’s contribution to youth football in Sydney and to raise awareness and funds for brain cancer.
The EB Memorial Cup is partnered with the Mark Hughes Foundation, to raise awareness and much needed funds for brain cancer research. Brain cancer is significantly underfunded in comparison to other cancers and as such there has been little research into treatments or cures.
Together with the Mark Hughes Foundation, the EB Memorial Cup aims to continue the fight against brain cancer.
