Vale Charlie Sutton

CHARLIE SUTTON 1924-2012

Charlie Sutton died today aged 88.

Footscray’s 1954 Premiership Captain/Coach, 1950 Best and Fairest winner, 18 times Victorian representative including Victorian Captain Coach 1952, Footscray President 1978-81

Charlie Sutton was a true Bulldog and a great clubman. Until recently he would attend training at least one night per week and he attended all Footscray functions where possible.

I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie on several occassions and I have his autograph which I treasure. From my experience, the glowing tributes we have heard today from his peers, colleagues, family and friends are of a great man and indeed the man I encountered. Warm, generous, friendly with a wicked sense of humour.

A visit to ‘The Welcome Stranger Hotel’ in Bourke St, Melbourne would often include an entertaining chat with the owner Charlie Sutton and sometimes even a complementary pot!

Fairwell to a true legend and a lovely bloke.
