Manly mourning Jason Annear: Perry
Wednesday 10 October 2012 4:03 PM
The Manly Warringah Sea Eagles have been formally advised by police of the tragic passing of Jason Annear, a talented member of the NSW Cup team.
Jason was a popular, highly respected and valued member of the team on and off the field.
He joined the Manly family in 2007, playing both Harold Matthews and SG Ball before debuting in Toyota Cup in 2009 and graduating to NSW Cup in 2012.
His passing has come as a great shock to the club and our thoughts and prayers are with Jason’s family.
Sea Eagles head coach Geoff Toovey has passed on the thoughts of the team.
“Jason was a dedicated player and trainer, well liked by everyone in the squad.
“He’d been in the Manly system for several years and will be greatly missed by everyone at the club.
“It’s tragic to see the life of such a promising young player cut short.”
Sea Eagles players and staff have been addressed and offered counselling.
We understand that the police and the coroner are conducting an investigation, therefore it is not appropriate for us to make further comment.
