One of the last remaining players from the golden era, Simpson medallist and a bloke who never missed a home game right up until the end, another old stalwart gone from the members stand.

Sad to hear of his passing Bazza.. Another legend gone.A good servant to the SFFC

A extract from australianfootball.com/clubs/bio/South%2BFremantle/223

The period 1952-4 ranks as the most illustrious in South Fremantle’s history. Bernie Naylor broke George Doig’s 15-year-old WANFL record of 144 goals in a season when he booted 147 for the year in 1952 as South bounced back after a losing second semi final against West Perth to win their sixth pennant. A 36-point preliminary final victory over Claremont set up the grand final re-match with the Cardinals which saw South Fremantle trail by 27, 30 and 16 points before getting up to win by 21 points, 12.19 (91) to 10.10 (70). Follower Des Kelly got the Simpson Medal, with rover Steve Marsh (four goals), wingman Tony Parentich, ruckman Norman Smith, full forward Bernie Naylor (four goals) and utility Colin Boot also performing well. A crowd of 27,201 watched the game.

Yes mate a tremendous player and a real legend,,, as you know SF and WP were great rivals during this period.

the great thing about des is that he kept coming along to wafl games right up until this year, he sat in the same seat with a regular crew, that crew is now one less....sadly no body will take his place.
