Silvertails Memorials

When we started this site many years ago, not one of us could have imagined it would grow to what it is today, a loose mesh of us with a common passion for the Mighty Manly Warringah Sea Eagles. The site has grown in leaps and bounds and has now become a community close-knit and drawn together by so many heart breaking losses and amazing triumphs.


It is inevitable, that when a community grows to the size that Silvertails has become, that we are tragically going to have to farewell many who have touched our hearts and shared in the memories and added to our passions.


I never thought that this site would become such a personal investment in emotions and time, however it is a part of me now, and each and every member of the site, adds to a part of who I am, in a strange way even though many of us have not met, I consider you my peers, we share a maniacal passion for our team, and we have shared so much over the years and together we have grown.


With all of this in mind, I feel that it is important to remember and immortalise the friends and fans that we have lost over the years, and to remember their contributions to the site and this mighty team we all love.


Below you will find the names of those we have farewelled, and if there are those we have missed, please contact us so that we can add them to our list.


Vale to each of you.
