McCarthy Homes Milestone - "Doc Thompson OAM"

Andrew Thomson

Sherwood Football Club Life Member Dr Greg Thompson was the richly deserving recipient of an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) on Saturday.

Members of the Sherwood Footy community, players, supporters, parents and no doubt the wider QLD Footy community would be very familiar with ‘Doc’ after his many years of service at the club, both as a match day doctor and volunteer, club director and unofficial publicist and historian! He has likely treated almost as many opposition players as Magpies in his years, and is hugely respected face in the crowd.

However, while his service to the Sherwood Football Club alone has been a remarkable association, Doc is also a life member of both the Tocumwal Footy Club, Tocumwal Cricket Club and Murray Valley Cricket Association and is a local legend in the Riverina community and was known to be rolling the pitch on a Friday night before play the very next day such is his dedication to giving his time to community clubs.

Everyone at the the Magpies is both incredibly thankful for Doc’s efforts over many years and equally proud to be associated with Doc and Maryanne and the extended Thompson family.
