LEGEND OF THE GAME
Our Director of Coaching is a fierce competitor, a coaching mastermind, and now an Australian Football Legend, there is no one more deserving of AFL Legend status than Kevin Sheedy. During his half a century of service to Australian football Sheedy excelled as a player with Richmond, but made his biggest impact on the game as a four-time premiership coach during an astonishing 27-year reign at Essendon. The self proclaimed “back-pocket plumber” played for the Tigers between 1967-79, winning three premierships, and was named in the club’s team of the century. Fellow AFL legend Kevin Bartlett said “He was innovative, he was a risk-taker and he moved players about like chess pieces.” Sheedy created the annual Dreamtime at the ‘G clash between Essendon and Richmond, as well as the Bombers’ Anzac Day match against Collingwood.
