About us

Formed in 1996, the Dick Reynolds Club (DRC) was established to fundraise for, and support, EFC’s past players who found themselves in difficulty or hardship. At this time, there was little to no support available for players once they finished football. This situation is still a reality for players who ended their playing careers prior to the introduction of the AFL Players Association.

The DRC has operated as a coterie group of the Essendon Football Club for the past 22 years, however, from 2019, is managed by EFC’s Past Players & Officials Association, an organisation that operates independently of the club.

Do you want to connect with EFC’s Past Players? Do you want to support them? EFC’s Past Players & Officials Association has one of the largest networks of past players and officials in the AFL.

A $55 DRC Membership will allow you to continue to celebrate the history and culture of the Essendon Football Club with our past players, as well as ensuring that they are looked after.
