‘Unimaginably difficult time’: Roos pay tribute to former player’s daughter killed in Bondi Junction attack


North Melbourne will wear black armbands in Sunday afternoon’s clash with Geelong in honour of former player and club director Kerry Good’s daughter Ashlee, who was tragically killed during the Bondi Junction attack.

Ashlee’s nine-month old daughter Harriet also suffered injuries in the horror knife attack, with six people killed.

Her father played 74 games for the Kangaroos between 1977 and 1983, later serving as a club director during the 1990s.

In a statement, club president Sonja Hood paid tribute to the Good family.

“Like all Australians, we were horrified to see the awful details coming out of Sydney on Saturday,” Dr Hood said.  

“To learn later that Ashlee and her daughter were victims in this tragedy really brings something like this close to home.  

“Our thoughts and condolences go to all those impacted by the awful events, especially to Ashlee’s partner Daniel Flanagan, Kerry and Dian, Ashlee’s mother Denise, and Ashlee’s extended family and friends. 

“Kerry and his family are incredibly important people in our club’s history and we offer them our love and support through what is an unimaginably difficult time.”
