Essendon farewells Club stalwart
Essendon Football Club was saddened to hear of the recent passing of club stalwart and former player Alan Thaw at the age of 81. Thaw played 41 games for Essendon between 1949 and 1954.

While at the other end of the ground 97% of supporters believe Matthew Lloyd will fit back in perfectly at full forward after missing last season.
