It is with deep sadness to advise that Anthony Sheridan passed away suddenly on Wednesday 29th January 2020.

Anthony "Stretch" Sheridan was a gun ruckman for the Avondale Heights Football Club. He also played with Essendon Reserves. Stretch was very athletic, a great mark of the footy and possessed a “different” kicking style. Only a few would remember but Stretch was also a very good cricketer, quick opening bowler who spearheaded the U/16 Grand Final for Avondale Heights Cricket Club.

Stretch's biggest achievement was being announced as a member of the Avondale Heights Football Club Golden Jubilee Team 1965-2015

Stretch kept in touch with the club through watching his nephew James (brother Darren’s son) play on Sundays and was a regular supporter at Seniors games over the years, usually catch him in the rooms having a beer or two with Darren and studying the Form Guide!
Stretch always had a welcoming smile on his face and was always up for a chat. Gone way to bloody soon, Rest in Peace Big Fella
