Essendon Football Club extends its deepest condolences to the families of past players Alexander Talbot and Max Nixon, along with former club official Sam Chazan, who sadly passed away over the festive period.

Talbot, affectionately known as ‘Sandy’, joined Essendon’s reserves team in 1967 as a fair-haired full-back from Bacchus Marsh, working his way into the seniors to play 33 senior games in guernsey Nos. 51 and 27 before retiring in 1973.

Nixon, the Bombers’ former No.17, recorded one goal from his six games in 1956. He was a talented half-forward from Orbost, but returned home to his family farm after one season.

Dr Chazan served as club doctor in a successful era from 1960 to ’71, playing an integral role in the Bombers’ 1962 and ’65 premiership years. He was acknowledged for his contribution with Essendon Life Membership in 1970.

The club’s sincerest thoughts are with the late trio’s loved ones during this difficult time.
