On Saturday afternoon, Ringwood suffered the tragic loss of one of our own. Mitch, 'Tits', Pettett passed away after a 12 month battle with cancer, aged 22.

Our Reserves and Seniors will wear black armbands for Mitch in this weeks clash against Boronia Football Club, a fitting tribute as Mitch played in two U19s flags against Boronia in 2013 and 2014.

Mitch was and will be, a beloved member of the club. Whilst receiving treatment this year, Mitch continued to be involved in the RFC. He helped coach the reserves and juniors early in the year, as well as coming down to as many games as he could. His love and passion for the club, the game and all his mates that play was unconditional.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Ann, Bryce, Harley, Abbey and all Mitch's family and friends.

Tits, you will be missed by so many, thank you for the love and laughter, the strength and commitment, and the memories we shared #redbacks53
