It is with great sadness that the Sherwood Football Club acknowledges the passing of long time member, supporter and former player Leslie Franzway who died suddenly on October 12.
Les was a Windsor-Zillmere Junior who made the move to the local area to play his senior football with Sherwood after forming some friendships with many of his Sherwood opponents in his youth.
Les was a strong centre-half-forward with a great set of hands and a beautiful kick, playing many years of Senior football with the Magpies in the 1970’s. An unfortunate accident resulting in Les suffering serious burns saw him miss 2-3 years of football before again returning to play in the early 1980s.
Upon retirement from playing Les remained at the club in various volunteer administrative roles and formed part of the selection committee for many years.
Most recently, Les has been a regular at all Sherwood home games for the past decade, taking a very keen interest in the progress of his Magpies.
Past teammates, friends and members of the Sherwood Football Club community are are invited to attend a service for Leslie which will be held at The Church of The Twelve Apostles, 111 Yallambee Road, Jindalee on Wednesday, 24th October, 2018 commencing at 12noon.
