It was with great sadness that we recently heard of the passing of Maurie Lehmann. Maurie, who was ex-State Savings Bank, played six games at the start of 1952, wearing No. 8. While his senior career with Melbourne was brief, he was a great friend to many of those who played throughout the decade, and remained connected until his passing on 5 December.

We offer our most sincere condolences to Maurie’s family and friends, and assure them that he will always be remembered as part of the red and blue family.
