Spe­cial Spi­ders re­union

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

A mem­o­rable Corowa Spi­ders 1968 pre­mier­ship 50-year re­union was en­joyed by the Corowa and district foot­ball com­mu­nity on Sun­day.

As the O and M Chair­man David Sin­clair aptly said on the day, “to have a re­union is very good and to have a re­union pre­mier­ship is even bet­ter”.

Ten play­ers from the pre­mier­ship side were able to at­tend and loved catch­ing up with fel­low play­ers, some of whom they have not seen for decades.

A sig­nif­i­cant re­union such as this high­lights the im­por­tance of team and club in our com­mu­ni­ties.

It was clear the re­union was a most sat­is­fy­ing part of the club’s his­tory and that was ev­i­dent as the play­ers stayed chat­ting for sev­eral hours.

At­ten­dees loved hear­ing past play­ers re­call­ing fond mem­o­ries of their time at the club and pre­mier­ship day.

The suc­cess­ful team in 1968 was greatly sup­ported by many of the club per­sonal in­clud­ing train­ers, bound­ary um­pires, of­fi­cials and other club mem­bers both male and fe­male.

The play­ers who have since passed from the pre­mier­ship team were also recog­nised.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the key or­gan­is­ers in­clud­ing the su­perb mi­cro­phone per­for­mance by Robert Tait and Phil Godde, this was an im­por­tant mile­stone to mark, re­mem­ber and cel­e­brate.
