The East Geelong football community has been devastated by the loss of one of their own after reserves coach Craig Carey suddenly passed away on Tuesday night.

Carey, who had been a reserves coach since 2017 had been a big part of the club, and his sudden death has come as a huge shock to the community and his club team.

Lovingly known as ‘Doc,’ Carey is reported to have suffered a cardiac arrest just before a club fitness session at Eastern Beach.

Club president Sean O’Leary said,

“The boys met at East Geelong to head down to the Eastern Beach to do some fitness work, and Craig headed off first and ran down there himself.”

“He’d worked hard on his fitness the last couple of years and was getting involved with the players.”

“They came in behind him and noticed he’d collapsed on the ground.”

“A couple of boys worked on him until the ambulance got there,” O’Leary said.

Tributes for the reserves coach have poured in with many remembering Carey as popular and approachable, and an integral part of leading the reserves team to its current 19th straight win.

East Geelong Football and netball (EGFC) club confirmed the sad news on Facebook:

“It is with great sadness that the East Geelong Football and Netball Club announce the sudden passing of current and 2019 reserves premiership coach Craig ‘Doc” Carey. Doc has been a huge part of the Eagles fabric since 1980 and our condolences are with his wife Lyndell, daughters Emily and Sarah, and son Josh and his extended family.”

“He’s been a big part of the club, and it was just a surreal situation: just a numb feeling.”

“He just always smiled. He was keen for a chat – he loved telling a story,” O’Leary said

Scott Penning from BFNC also shared his condolences on Twitter:

“Wow. On behalf of BFNC thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Doc and all associated with the club with his passing.

The EGFC president Sean O’Leary said in a final send off for the man who was a much-loved part of the Eagles –


“We fly as one.”
