The Eltham Football club is saddened by the passing of Graham Sinclair
The club would like pass on its sincere condolences to wife Marlene, Sons Darren, Dale and Brett (current club vice president) Grandson Lane (current) senior player) and the extended Sinclair family.
Graham was coach of EFC juniors back in the mid 70’s and early 80’s and also if not coaching he would help out as team manager, assistant or runner. Graham also would be the organiser of day trips to the snow and even took the whole team and some parents to luna park in the back of his wood shaving truck, and eventually he would organise end of year camping trips to lake Eppalock which became an annual event with players and parents always keen for these end of year trips.
Graham became coach of the under 18 team (now the u/19) where he had to get a lot of players out of bed each Saturday to play, he also helped out the reserves and coached the senior team on one occasion where the coach could not get there (Reason unknown) His involvement with senior club went so far, he eventually took the senior teams up to his lake Eppalock property for pre-season training trips.
Over the years at junior and senior level, Graham was much loved and respected by the players and EFC community!
On behalf of the Eltham football club we would like to send our condolences to the entire Sinclair family during this time of need!
