Fun night as footy club rem­i­nisces

Narrogin Observer - - News - Michael Traill

Past members of the Nar­ro­gin Rail­ways Foot­ball Club re­united last Satur­day night at the Ea­gles sport­ing club.

Among the crowded clu­b­rooms were members of the Rail­ways’ 1972 and 1978 pre­mier­ship side.

This year marks the 40th an­niver­sary of Rail­ways’ last pre­mier­ship.

A found­ing club of the Up­per Great South­ern Foot­ball League in 1959, Rail­ways be­came the Nar­ro­gin Ea­gles in 1993.

They then merged with ri­val found­ing club, Nar­ro­gin Lions (Nar­ro­gin Towns) in 2004 to be­come today’s Nar­ro­gin Hawks.

Members of the old club shared sto­ries of their time play­ing in both Rail­ways and Ea­gles jumpers.

Woggy Ewen, John Chalmers, Norm and Diane Sims, Michelle Ewen, Paul and Janet Hughes.
