Brian “Buddy” Travers

The Lindfield community has lost a long term servant with the passing of Buddy Travers.

As senior First Grade coach Buddy steered the Club through the highly successful early 1980’s and was quick to answer a call to come back later in the decade when the Club was relegated in 1986.

Buddy was an uncompromising coach who often laced on a pair of boots to play in the lower grades. Fitness was a key doctrine and he regularly ran with the team especially on Tuesday night fitness sessions.

He will long be remembered by his catch cry “In the nose, out the mouth” and will be sadly missed by the many past players he helped through the years.

Details of the funeral are to follow.
