About Us

Formed in 1996, the Dick Reynolds Club (DRC) is a non-match day coterie group which celebrates the history and culture of the Essendon Football Club by hosting a number of specialised events. It provides a membership outside official club activities and weekend football enabling members and guests to enjoy themselves in a professional, entertaining environment.

The DRC is an integral link to the EFC community and provides funds to the EFC Past Players and Officials Association, which supports their involvement in the ongoing activities of EFC and recognises their contribution to the club’s great history. The coterie group is managed by a voluntary committee of 10 EFC supporters.

What We Do

The purpose of the DRC is to support and honour Essendon players, coaches and personnel through recognition at events such as the Hall of Fame, Daniher Dynasty Fundraiser and Merv Neagle Tribute Dinner.

Over the past 20 years the DRC has conducted over 70 functions that have highlighted special occasions including player milestones, player reunions, half of fame presentations, Club history and player fundraisers.

The DRC provides members with an opportunity to build professional networks with other Essendon supporters whilst enjoying premium hospitality and fantastic entertainment.
