The Club was saddened to learn of the passing of former A Grade Captain and Life Member Peter Parkinson. Peter is the father of current Vice Chairman James Parkinson and grandfather to current Committee members Angus Parkinson and Jake Galloway.

In sharing some memories of Peter many noted, as a result of his playing and leadership prowess, Peter was one of the iconic and revered players at the Club in his day.

Our thoughts are with the Parkinson family. The A Grade will be wearing black armbands tomorrow as a tribute to Peter.
