STATEMENT FROM AFL TASMANIA CEO TRISHA SQUIRES

We are shocked and saddened to learn of the tragic passing of Tasmanian Football Council Chairman, Paul Reynolds.

The thoughts of all at AFL Tasmania are with Paul’s friends and family, the Northern Tasmania Football Association and the Tasmanian Football Council.

The game has lost a dedicated and passionate leader that worked hard to progress and support football in the north of the state.

I worked very closely with Paul, I admired his leadership and saw how much he cared and how hard he worked for football. He will be sadly missed by all in our game.

The TSL this weekend will observe a moment of silence and players in all three Grand Finals will wear black arm bands to mourn the passing of a great Tasmanian football man.
