The Club is saddened by the passing of John Edwards, an outstanding contributor to the Club both on and off the field, since 1958 to the date of his death last Wednesday 17 May 2023.

John started playing for the Club in 1958 and played 203 games across all grades until 1976. John won the C Grade B&F in 1970, served on the Committee for many years and was a regular supporter at games until the weeks before his death.

John is deservedly recognized as one of the driving forces behind the ‘245 Club’ at 245 The Parade, the spiritual home of the Club from the late ‘70’s to late ‘90’s, through his involvement & contacts in the building industry, his energy & enthusiasm and as a regular & committed patron! The ‘245 Club’ spirit lives on at Park 9 through the Club’s significant financial contribution to the new facility.

John was inducted into the Club’s Hall of Fame in 2013.
