1960 Edenhope Premiership Football Team

“JB” Forster has done a wonderful job to organise all but three living (4 team members have passed on) members of the Jack Finck’s second premiership team in three years – the  1960 Premiership Team, to celebrate a reunion during the Edenhope-Apsley Saints versus Harrow Balmoral Roos game at Edenhope this Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend  11th June, 2011.  Coming from as far as Bairnsdale and Darwin, everyone is making a special effort  and looking forward to a great weekend.   There will be a display of newspaper clippings, photographs and no doubt lots of stories being told on the day.
Team members of the 1971-1972 Premiership (photo courtesty Donna And-Wayne Farr on the Edenhopehistory facebook site)   team will also celebrate a reunion with coach John McBain , who went on to play with Port Adelaide Football Club, together with the famous  former Norwood and Collingwood player Phil Carman.
The back to back wins were against Kybybolite and 1970 Kyby coach Graeme MacKenzie, who previously played with Fitzroy, will be at the “The Longneck Club” at 1pm where the 1970-71 players will meet along with the 1960 boys.

The evening will continue with entertainment from Kevin Sporer , a very popular entertainer for many past Edenhope events.  On Sunday, a BBQ lunch at the clubrooms from 11 am – 1 pm ……… and another chance to reminisce!!

For all the ex footy players now turned golfing addicts –  Edenhope Golf Club plays competition golf on Sunday afternoons and welcomes visiting players.

Edenhope-Apsley made a great start to the new Horsham District Football League season last Saturday with an opening round win against Noradjuha-Quantong at Edenhope.   Check out some history of the Edenhope Football Club and a video of “Edenhope wins against Borders 1983”  Well worth the 6.5 minutes to watch!
