It is with much sadness that we bring you the news Macleod’s 1971 premiership coach Kevin Dillon passed away early yesterday morning.
A former Brunswick VFA star, Kevin joined Macleod as playing coach in 1967 and finished as non-playing coach in 1972. His influence over the club in that time was profound, guiding us to the 1971 Division One flag, and numerous finals appearances.
Although he was enjoying retired life in Ocean Grove, Kevin was a regular attendee at MFC functions and reunions and we always enjoyed hearing his stories, particularly those relating to the 1971 flag.
Our thoughts are with the Dillon family.
