Long-serving Geelong Cats volunteer, Vic Fuller, has been awarded the 2015 Alec Gillon Award by AFL Victoria.
Vic has been recognised for his outstanding service to the Geelong Football Club and football in general after 41 years as a club volunteer.
Vic’s services and achievements shone through amongst a high quality field of nominees.
Beginning at the Cats in 1975, Vic managed the club’s Little League Team until 1983.
At the end of that year, Vic was promoted to Geelong Reserves Team Manager and after 32 years, he still holds the role of VFL Team Manager.
Vic attends the club 5-6 days per week, including AFL training sessions and VFL training two nights per week, assisting where required and running the player kitchen during lunchtimes.
Vic is also the AFL Doorman on match days at Simonds Stadium, Etihad Stadium and the MCG, making him a familiar face for everyone involved with the club.
Vic has undertaken a number of other roles over the years including AFL interchange coordinator and club bus driver.
A life member of the Geelong Football Club, Vic’s dedication to the Cats means all Fuller family functions are coordinated around the AFL and VFL fixtures.
The 74-year-old spends a lot of time around the club in-season so once October rolls around, he and wife Nola head up North in their caravan for some well deserved r&r.
Vic will be formally presented with his award at the VFL’s JJ Liston Medal night on Monday 7th September at Crown Palladium.
