Bombers farewell Stan Booth
It is with sadness that Essendon Football Club announces the passing of former player Stan Booth. Born in 1933, Booth played 102 games for Essendon between 1952 and 1959 and he kicked 118 goals in that time as a fast moving, elusive rover who usually rested on a half forward flank.
Camporeale to see specialist on Wednesday
Essendon midfielder Scott Camporeale will see a specialist on Wednesday after injuring his right Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) on Sunday night against Richmond.

Lloyd and McPhee show their tricks
Essendon’s Matthew Lloyd and Adam McPhee have been recognised for two exciting pieces of play on the weekend with both players earning themselves a nomination in the AFL awards for the week. Lloyd has been nominated for this week’s Toyota AFL Mark of the Year after James Hird bombed the ball in from the 50m mark for Lloyd to mark in the goalsquare in the third quarter of last week’s match against Richmond.
