Hamer back for Demons re­union

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Hor­sham Foot­ball Club triple premier­ship coach and player Gary Hamer will be among guests at a din­ner at Hor­sham City Oval on Satur­day night.

Hamer, also a for­mer star crick­eter in Hor­sham, will join the Demons for a joint 1968 and 2008 premier­ship re­union.

Hor­sham club spokesman Rod Dumesny said the Demons had en­joyed a strong re­sponse to in­vi­ta­tions to the event, which would be part of a Satur­day night foot­ball and net­ball fix­ture against South­ern Mallee Gi­ants.

“It’s go­ing to be fantastic. We’ve had a great re­sponse and there are a lot of peo­ple com­ing,” he said.

Re­union ac­tiv­i­ties start up­stairs at Hor­sham City Oval clu­b­rooms from 4pm. A se­nior foot­ball match will start at 6.20pm.

Records show that Hamer’s un­der­dog Hor­sham team won the 1968 premier­ship from fourth spot over flag favourite Stawell in the dra­matic last mo­ments of the game. Scores were Hor­sham 8.9 (57) to Stawell 6.17 (53).

In 2008, Hor­sham won a one-sided af­fair against Hor­sham Saints 19.14 (128) to 9.8 (80).
