The Harvey Bulls Football Club is deeply saddened by the passing of Lockie and we send our deepest condolences and sympathies to his family, friends and teammates.

Lockie started playing football for the Harvey Bulls when he was four years old, where he participated in Auskick.

He played all his football life with the Bulls, playing over 200 games for the club – 64 league games, 29 colts games and 135 junior games.

Lockie won the Junior Footballer of the Year award in 2012 and Fairest and Best award for the colts in 2015.

He represented the South West colts at the Landmark carnivals in 2015, 2016 and 2017, the team winning championships in 2016 and 2017.

Lockie’s sporting ability, commitment and fitness was admirable. Whichever sport he played, whether it football or basketball, his natural ability, talent and personality led him to excel in everything that he put his mind to.

Lockie was well respected by his teammates. He always looked out for them, on and off the field. He always made everyone feel welcome and enjoyed the camaraderie and mateship of everyone around him.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Mel, Kailee, Mick, Stacey, Rory, Samara, David, Sharon, Wayne and Carly forever.

Lockie will be greatly missed not only at the football club, but in the wider Harvey and football community.

Our focus at this difficult time is everyone’s wellbeing and making sure everyone gets the support they need. A tribute match for Lockie will be played in Harvey on Saturday, May 18, to pay our respects to our teammate and mate.

We will always keep talking about our little number 4 champ.

RIP Lockie.
