Players honour Vic

GEELONG players have observed a minute’s silence at training this morning following the death of much-loved club volunteer Vic Fuller.

Fuller, 79, suffered a stroke at training on Monday morning and couldn’t be revived.

An emotional Joel Selwood also spoke to the Cats’ playing group and football staff.

“Yesterday was really tough for a lot of people,” the captain said.

“He touched people in many different ways. He was a hell of a person, he’ll live on in this footy club.

“He didn’t want things to be about him until it was about him, and he’ll be laughing all the way to heaven.”

 

Fuller’s jacket and a Geelong VFL jumper hung from the water trolley he presided over were front and centre, while football boss Simon Lloyd said some of his famous quotes were written on a whiteboard.

“He was a very special person and a great character,” Lloyd said.

“There’s a lot of wonderful, funny stories about Vic.

“He’s been an important part of the fabric of the Geelong Football Club and we’re really thinking of his wife Nola and his sons at the moment.”
