VALE MICHAEL SIGALAS
To Lil, Troy, Todd, Trent & Mitchell our support and thoughts are with you all.
Michael’s passing will leave a void on our community and many other sporting groups he was involved with. From his years of coaching prowess at OCGFC with the Under 19’s and Seniors, it was his relationship with the under 19 players, the influence and presence he provided to these boys that will always be remembered, with a smile, fondness and pride.
He enjoyed his moments coaching and mentoring young men with their football and life. If it was on the football field or his office in Canterbury, it was always entertaining and successful.
An old boy of Camberwell Grammar his love of his old school saw him sending his 4 boys there, Troy, Todd, Trent & Mitchell. He coached junior football, then lead the Wellers’ Under 19’s to four consecutive premierships (1999, 2000, 2001, 2002) and the memories those teams have is endless. Ziggy then went on to coach the Seniors (2003, 2004) and was an assistant in the 2007 premiership year. Throughout these years Michael’s influence to the boys was marvellous.
Recently the club recognised and honoured Michael (2015) in naming the Best & Fairest Under 19 award as a medal “The Michael Sigalis Medal”. I know this was a very proud moment for him and his family.
Always to be remembered in our community and hearts.
