The death of George Stuckey
It came as a great shock to many old footballers and cricketers when they heard of the death of Mr George Stuckey, who was a noted all-round athlete in his day. He passed away at North Melbourne on March 14, aged 59 years [sic, 60 years]. He was a dashing footballer, a great captain who led Essendon for years, a vigorous club batsman, a splendid runner between wickets, and a fine outfield, besides being a foot-runner of distinction. He played cricket with North Melbourne, a prominent member of a rare combination when led by the late Dick Houston. It was as a football leader, however, that George Stuckey became famous, having served under a good master.
