The Passing of Mitchell Celantano


The East Keilor Football Club family has suffered an enormous loss with the passing of Mitchell on the Gold Coast on Tuesday morning 5th of January.

Mitch was a popular player and member of our club and his passing will leave a void across many generations of our EKFC family.

The Celantano family is linked right through the history of EKFC with his Grandfather Murray being a former junior coach, Grandmother Jean a club helper, as well as his parents Richie and Raelene who are so well known to so many at the club. Mitch’s brother Mason is a junior player at our club, so the impact of Mitch’s passing is far reaching within our community.

Our love and thoughts are with the Celantano family and also the lads that were with Mitch on the Gold Coast at this very difficult time.

Please note that the club will be organising professional counselling in the coming weeks for those that wish to utilise it and should anyone need more immediate help, please do not hesitate to contact either Geoff (Club President) on 0417 362 775 or Gavan (Club Secretary) on 0418 306 000.
