Anne Wood

It is with great sadness that we note the passing of a long standing supporter of our club, Anne Wood.
Anne, the wife of Best Clubman and Life member, John Wood, and mother and supporter of her sons John, Peter, Greig, David, and Chris, all who proudly wore the club jumper, sadly passed away early this week.


Anne was at the forefront of women in the early 80’s who helped institute the concept of family football at our club and was a regular fixture at the rooms on Thursdays and Saturdays.
Anne was part of the drive to “get a good feed into the boys” after training of a Thursday night. A tradition which continues to this day.


Anne was a good friend to many at St. Bernards and was a vital social member at a crucial time in our history. She has helped make our club what it has become today.
Anne will be sadly missed, may she rest in peace.


Our condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to the Wood family at this difficult time.


Wayne Carey, on behalf of the Club.
