The club made mention of the sad passing of Max Angel Mildren at the Yerong Creek match and showed their respect to the former director and volunteer, who played for both Lockhart and Yerong Creek over the years, by wearing black arm bands. Max was a great community man, supporting the Town Band, RSL, Ex-Services Club, Masonic Lodge, Manchester Unity and Bowling Club just to name a few. Sincere condolences are expressed to his wife, Margaret and family.
