The Collingwood Football Club is sad to report that Brendan Stroud has passed away overnight. 

A premiership coach and captain for our wheelchair team, Brendan epitomised what it means to be a Collingwood person. 

Brendan played a pivotal role in the inauguration of the Victorian Wheelchair League, and has been an outstanding contributor to our club and community. 

An inspiring husband, friend and clubman, Brendan's memory will live on in the hearts of those who he impacted so significantly. 

Our wheelchair team will play in the VWFL Grand Final today, in respect of Brendan's contribution to our club. 

We send our thoughts to his wife Natalie, family and friends.
