SANFL is deeply saddened by the passing of Lee Virgin, President of the North Adelaide Football Club.
SANFL Chief Executive Officer Jake Parkinson said Lee, a long-standing Board member, Vice President and President of NAFC, had made an invaluable contribution to his beloved Roosters over the years.
“Lee showed great leadership and a tremendous loyalty to the North Adelaide Football Club, the club he followed since his childhood, culminating in their most recent Premiership success in 2018 under his presidency,” Mr Parkinson said.
“Lee will be fondly remembered and missed by many people in football as a dedicated and highly respected club man.
“His love for footy and willingness to get involved also was evident over the years at a grassroots level through his association with the PHOS-Camden Football Club.”
On behalf of SANFL and the South Australian Football Commission, we acknowledge Lee’s contribution to our game and extend our deepest sympathy to Lee’s wife, Robyn, and the Virgin family at this very sad time.
