Reid was raised to legendary status in Essendon a few days ago, alongside Neale Daniher, Gavin Wanganeen and Dustin Fletcher
« Neale and Bruce have both struggled with respective health issues in recent years, so I am delighted that our Hall of Fame committee can bestow this honor on two of these beloved members of the Essendon family. Neale and Bruce are warriors and we wish them and their families our continued love, thoughts and support, ”said Bombers president Paul Brasher in his quote.
« This is sad news for everyone, especially [wife] Judy and the kids The soccer club was almost like a sanctuary for him, he just loved the club and the boys He made a huge impact on the lives of so many such a wonderful man, ”said Goddard
