Passing of a club legend.

23 SEP | BY BRENTON WESTELL

The club is saddened by the passing of former player Greg Treloar.

Joining the club straight from Unley High in 1973, Greg quickly made his mark as a skilful footballer, a great social event organiser, a willing helper behind the scenes, and a good friend to many from that era. In over a decade of continuous on and off field support, he left an indelible mark on the club, and was very proud of what the Jets had become.

Greg played 156 games and kicked 83 goals (including a famous one after the siren to get us into the four). He won the 79 B grade B&F, and was on committee for a few years including a stint as social secretary. He was instrumental in building friendships through his love of organising now legendary events, such as the car rallies, port bottlings and the infamous ‘Drinkathon’. Older brother Rick (118 games) and son Zach (43) also played for the club. He shared a house with Bern Steer for many years, and great times were had by his numerous school friends and footy mates. He will be greatly missed by all.

Our thoughts are with Jocelyn, Abe, Jed, Zach, Maddie and extended families. The funeral is this Wednesday (26th Sep) followed by a wake at the Jets Clubrooms (details online and in The Advertiser).
