The club site has advised of Frank Leonard's passing. Frank started as a half-forward IIRC, before playing a lot of footy on a half-back flank under Fos. Tough player and good overhead. I think he also went on to have a pretty long and successful underage coaching career at Norwood. Always sad to see players you admired as a kid pass on.

Frank Leonard R.I.P

When I think Frank Leonard , I think of the 2 finals WA V WT in 1969
It was Frank Leonards first year of SANFL football
The first final was a drawn match
In the replayed semi final WA won by 21 points, in this match from memory,  Frank Leonard played very well

A 100+ game footballer who went on to successfully coach Norwood under age teams
Franks under 19 teams won a few premierships

Frank also coached WWT reserves teams to success as well

It is with sadness we advise the passing of Lyn Edward Humphrey (Joe), 8/2/1951 - 6/1/2021.
Known to all as Joe, he played as a Centre Half Forward in the U/19's and Reserves at Hawthorn from 1967 to 1969 before embarking on a career at Box Hill (VFA)
In 1974 he came to play at West Adelaide alongside his mate Bruce Stevenson.
Joe played at West Adelaide from 1974 to 1978 for a total of 38 games & 18 goals.
He has had a long battle with cancer and was 69.

We send our deepest sympathy to Jenny, Nick, Jess, Alex, Georgia, family and friends.
Vale Lyn Edward Humphey

I'm not sure how many of Joe's 38 games would have been played with Bruce Stevenson and Ray Hayes in the side, but what a terrifying prospect those 3 would have presented for the opposition. He played all his footy for us under Fos and was very much in that old-fashioned Port Adelaide style - very physical.
I also have a vague memory of him making himself particularly unpopular with Glenelg fans during a Reserves game at the Bay. RIP Joe.

Very sad. I idolised Murray Weideman as a kid. He led us to the first final I saw us play, in 1968.
I will never forget being in the packed change rooms before games at Richmond and listening to him standing on a massage table, in his playing gear, exhorting the players. Such a commanding presence.

In the VFL, he was a giant presence and did well when he came to West.

There are a few photos of him in 'Flags Spoons & Knives', including one similar to what you described, Aldo, addressing the players after a great win against Port.

RIP Murray.

The 'Vale Murray Weideman' article on the club website is a very ordinary effort in my opinion. Weideman was a giant of the game who coached us for 4 years, worthy of a far more substantive piece than that cursory acknowledgment. It also beggars belief that we can't even get the facts right about our own coaches/players. He was playing coach in 1968 and '69, and non-playing coach in 1970 and '71, contrary to what the article says.
We are not covering ourselves in glory in this department of late.

I can't see anything on the website.

With so few left at the Club who know our history, we're really missing Mark Beswick.

I think it's been changed but it's still not right, it's still got him as playing coach in '70 and '71, when he was non-playing coach.
