It is with greatness sadness that we advise the football community of the passing of Wayne Derrick over the weekend. Wayne was the Strength and Conditioning coach for our senior women’s teams, former SAP coach for many years and proud father of Taliesha, Raoul and Emilia. Wayne’s links to the club were as deep as his love of football and he was much-loved by all. Our hearts go out to his family.
We will have a counsellor at Goodwin Park tonight from 5pm and this support will be ongoing as help for Wayne’s family and our community through this difficult time.
We urge our community to take care of themselves and look out for each other. Speak up if you are struggling, check in on a mate and be kind. You never know what struggles are going on beneath the surface.
