GEELONG is mourning the death of two-time premeirship captain Fred Flanagan.

The 88-year-old died this morning and was regarded as one of the Cats' greatest ever players.

Flanagan was a member of Geelong's team of the century and led the club to back-to-back flags in 1951-2.

He was runner-up in the 1950 Brownlow Medal and finished with 163 games and 21 matches for Victoria.

"Fred was a great man and a great Geelong man," Geelong chief executive Brian Cook said today.

"He loved the club and the people that made up the club. I never heard anyone say a bad word about Fred and he loved footy as much at the end as he did throughout his life.

"Fred's record as a player speaks for itself, but it is the man himself that was special. We will all miss Fred's friendship and we offer our deepest condolences to Pauline and to their family."
