The Eltham Football Club is saddened by the passing of former player Don Stanley.

Don was a top line player with Eltham and was a member of the club’s 1974 Division 1 premiership side.

Don later served as a member of the league’s tribunal – joining as a panel member in 1986, before taking over as chairman in 1991, being awarded life membership of the League in 2011

The club sends its deepest condolences to the Stanley family.
