It is with deep regret that we have learnt of the passing of life member, Fred Judge over night.

Fred has a long history with the club, dating back to the early 1980s. He was the coach of the Swifts during our first ever season in what was then called the Northern League, in 1983, and coached the 1st team for twelve seasons. Fred also coached the 1st XI at Matamata College during the late 1980s.

Countless players in our community either began their football careers, or had them enhanced, under Fred’s tutelage.

More details will follow.
