& # 39; The club is deeply saddened to hear of the sudden death of one of our players, Jamie Brown, & # 39; read the Facebook page of Camden Cats Senior AFL.
& # 39; Jamie was a great guy, fun, adventurous and eager to try everything; whether it was backpacking through Australia or more recently on the ski slopes of Perisher.
& # 39; He was very popular with the footy club and was a great teammate during his 5 seasons with the Camden Cats. He will be missed enormously. & # 39;
