THE JOHN LLOYD-WILLIAMS REDLEGS ACADEMY
John Lloyd Williams (Postie) was a great Mt Eliza Redlegs Clubman. John passed away peacefully in 2021 after a long battle with illness. Postie’s involvement with our club goes back to the 1970’s where he was involved at all levels of our club. For 33 years he was our official senior timekeeper and spent 10 years on the committee. Over the decades Postie was involved in everything off field, from fundraising and bingo nights to anything and everything else around the club that needed to be done.
John was timekeeper in our 2001 & 2005 Senior flags as well as several Reserves and U18 finals. An amazing clubman, of not only our football club, but also the Mt Eliza Cricket Club over Summer. For his dedication and unwavering support, he is one of only 2 people to be honoured with life membership at both clubs.
In March 2022 the John Lloyd-Williams Foundation was formed by John’s sister, Sue Lloyd-Williams in honour of her brother and his commitment to sport in our region. The foundation bequeathed a financial commitment to the Mt Eliza Football Netball Club of $10,000 per year for a period of 20 years.
