Micky Francis and wife Yen and family have just returned to Australia after his Mum finally succumbed to a long illness.
Mick, an institution in Hanoi, continues to play a key role in resurrecting and building footy in Hanoi and across Vietnam as a going concern. He is also an institution at the Grand Final event in Hanoi which will have to kick on this year without him behind the microphone.
The growing family of Vietnam Swans in Vietnam and far flung corners of the world send our deepest sympathies to Mick and his family during this difficult time. Good luck with it all back in Australia, Mick.
The Vietnam Swans salute you today and on Saturday, in Hanoi and Saigon, we will toast you during our Grand Final events.
We’ll see you soon Big Fella.
Phil Johns, National President
