The loss of premiership player and current team member Nicholas Lowden has left the Norwood Football Club in mourning. Over two years (2022 and 2023), Nick appeared in 22 League games for the team. He used to be a member of the Casey Demons, a Victoria team.
The entire Norwood Football Club family, including the players, coaches, and fans, is heartbroken by the news of his passing. Nick, a strong player all over the field, made an immediate impression on the game, especially on the other team.
In Round 8 of 2022, he debuted for the League at Norwood Oval. Lowds’s contributions to the 2022 SANFL Grand Final victory were among his most notable and enduring. Nick had a strong start to the year, but a calf injury in Round 9 ended his season. Nick will be remembered by his Norwood Football Club teammates, coaches, volunteers, and administrative staff. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends at this time of loss.
