iainfaganThe Mitchelton Football Club is saddened to hear of the passing yesterday (Friday 7 April 2017) of club stalwart, former player, coach and long-term supporter, Iain Fagan.


Many of you will be aware of Iain's history with the Mitchelton Football Club.  He was a junior at our Club and a member of our Team of the Century. He coached our Senior team on two occasions winning the League and Grand Final double on one occasion. 


Iain's playing achievements included representing Australia at Under 23 level and playing in the National League for both Brisbane City and Brisbane Lions. Iain has coached at Premier League/State League level with North Star, Brisbane City and Grange Thistle with enormous success.  Iain also successfully coached a number of junior teams at Mitchie FC.


Our condolences go to Iain's family and friends, many of whom are members of our club. Details for the funeral service will be posted when they become available. 


As a mark of respect for Iain, our senior men will wear black arm bands during their Flight Centre Premier League match against Lions FC at Richlands on Sunday afternoon.
