Vale, Max Munday
Three champions of the 1950's - Harry Simpson, Max Munday (middle) and Gerry Callahan.
Williamstown Football Club extends its sincere condolences to the family of Life Member and Team of the Century full back Max Munday, who sadly passed away on Thursday, December 19, 2019, aged 89.
Munday played 120 games for the Club from 1952-58 and was an integral part of our 1954, '55 and '56 premierships. He was considered the best first-year player in 1952, after being recruited from Footscray and Yarraville Socials which played in the Footscray District League, and was awarded the most consistent player trophy in 1953 and the most effective player award in 1954.
See below a lovely story printed in the Dogtown Dialogue about Munday and his head-turning defensive prowess back in the day.
"In my book, he turned out to be the finest, most complete, full back in the business. He was all class." - WFC historian, Fred Critchley
