Vale Don McGregor

The club is deeply saddened by the news of Don McGregor’s passing. Donny had a lengthy and supportive association with the Hampton Rovers and passed away on Monday evening.

Don had recently undergone a double lung transplant and had been battling illness of late but his passing comes as a shock to many. It was great to see him at the club on a few occasions this year, including at the 50 Year Members Luncheon where he was recognised for his outstanding contribution.

Sadly, the club also lost Jan McGregor last year and Gordon McGregor four years ago.

Don first joined the club back in 1961, playing a total of 90 games. He proceeded to coach the Under 19s from 1967 until 1969. Off the field, he was President of the club in 1977 and 1978 and also had 10 years on the senior committee.

His contribution to the club was recognised with the ultimate honour – Life Membership.

The McGregor name is deeply entrenched in the Hampton Rovers Football Club with the entire family having much involvement over many years. This was recognised by the club a few years back with the U19 Best & Fairest award named the McGregor Medal and it will take on extra significance at the upcoming Presentation Night.

The club passes on its sincere condolences to Di, Blair and Brooke and the entire McGregor Family.

The Funeral Service will be held on Monday 13th October, commencing 1pm, at St Leonard’s Uniting Church, 2 Wolseley Grove (Cnr New Street), Brighton. The Wake will follow from around 3pm at The Cricketers Arms, 69 Cruikshank Street, Port Melbourne.
