Member of first League side passes on

Last Updated:

It is with deep regret that the Club mourns the passing of a playing member of our first League side in Alan Hayes.

Alan, who was affectionately known as ‘Blinkey’ was recruited from the Richmond Football Club in the VFL where he played from 1959 – 1962 and played 23 VFL games.

Alan primarily played across the centre or half forward.

He was a left foot kick, courageous and was very skilful and was highly respected by his team mates.

Alan played 51 games with the Club from 1964 – 1966 and kicked 14 goals.

Alan returned to Victoria where has since been residing.

The Club would pass on our deepest sympathy to Alan’s family.
