To All Newtown & Chilwell Football Netball Club Members, Sponsors and Community.

As you would know, one of our greats Newtown & Chilwell footballers, Kevin Higgins, passed away on the 5th of July.
We would like to acknowledge the incredible contribution Kevin made to our club, and pay our respects to Stuart, Deb, and the entire Higgins family.

After playing 153 games for Geelong and Fitzroy, Kevin kicked over 100 goals twice in a season, coached NCFNC Premierships in 1982, 1985 and 1986, Coach and Player in the team of the 1980’s, and Vice Captain in Newtown's Team of the Century.

Kevin was made a Life Member of our club in 1987.

He was truly one of the most influential figures to be part of our club, and his achievements will always be remembered.

The entire club mourns his passing, and our thoughts and love are with his family.

Kevin's funeral will be held this Friday the 12th July 2019 at 1:00pm, St. Bernards Catholic Church, 74 Fryers Road Belmont.

The wake will be held afterwards at NCFNC Club Rooms at Elderslie Reserve.



Shaun McWilliam
NCFNC President
