South Melbourne FC extends its deepest condolences to the Postecoglou family following the recent passing of Jim Postecoglou.
As the father of club legend Ange Postecoglou, Jim was a familiar face to the South family for four decades, watching his son progress through the juniors all the way through to captaining and coaching the first team to national championships. It has been well documented by Ange that Jim was a huge influence on both his playing and coaching career.
On behalf of the club, SMFC President Leo Athanasakis added that “the Postecoglou family has been a family we were and still are very proud to be associated with and we were all devastated when told of Jim’s passing. Our thoughts are with Ange’s family and friends at this terrible time.”
