Vale Peter Kerr
The club is saddened to report the passing of Senior Team Manager Peter Kerr who fell to an aggressive cancer which was diagnosed in mid 2015. Peter's involvement commenced as one of the premiership team mascots in 1967 and 1968. Then he not only went on to play junior and reserves football, but provided fantastic off-field service to the club. As well as coaching roles in the Juniors, Peter has also been a Team Manager and bench assistant for more than 20 years, including the 1993, 2006, 2007 and 2008 Senior Premierships and Reserves Premierships in 1997 and 1998. A true Tiger with the nickname of ‘Nobby’ he is one of a group of unassuming people who have formed the backbone of the club with their tireless and largely unrecognised service. A former Secretary 1987, Committee member, Life Member and winner of the Best Clubman award in 1997, Peter has been involved with the club in some official capacity for almost forty years. Our condolences go out to step-sons Tim and Justin, his aunt Nola and uncle Geoff. Peter also requested club supporters to consider joining the Corboy Club via a monthly direct debit of an amount to fit your budget. Funds raised go to reduce subs for players. RIP Peter 'Nobby' Kerr, passed too young at 58 years of age and spent more than 50 seasons at the Mentone Recreation Reserve, first attending with his dad Bill who was also a volunteer for the Tigers.
