They had Nathan Bower on club corner last night.

Very average player except he own Peter Matera on a footy field. One of the mysteries of the universe  :thumbsup. LOL mastermind Gieschen bringing him back into the seniors just for an Eagles game back in 98.

As part of my day off I also went to the Tommy Hafey Club Luncheon today.

The theme was "Fathers and Sons" who's played for the Tigers.

Some of the "Old" and not old tigers there were:

Michael, Sean & Joel Bowden
Alan & Matthew Richardson
Geoff & Andrew Raines
Michael & Tom Roach
Frank Bourke and grandson David (St Francis sent his apologises :thumbsup)
Max Oppy and his son Grant
Tony & Nick Jewell
John Pitura minus son Mark ;D


I think that's all of them

 :thumbsup

Looked very frail Mopsy but he was quite funny with his anwers to the Rex Hunt questions. Rex would ask these long questions about the family's history with the Club and Frank would give one word answers - Rex then asked young David a question and after he answered he went back to Frank and said something like "want to add anything to your last answer Frank?" and Frank would say "No". Seems like a very shy and humble man

Northey to coach Ballarat
« Reply #54 on: November 18, 2005, 03:45:54 AM »
Northey back in charge
18 November 2005  
Herald Sun
Mark Robinson

JOHN Northey has put the coaching hat back on at age 62.

The former Sydney, Melbourne, Richmond and Brisbane coach has returned to country Victoria and will coach Ballarat in the Ballarat Football League. He was appointed this week.

Sadly, the proposal to coach Ballarat arose when Northey, who was living on the Gold Coast, returned to Ballarat for his father's funeral in early September.

"It was out of the blue," Northey said yesterday.

Northey will also manage the club's new $1.2 million licensed sports club. He had previously owned a bar and restaurant on the Gold Coast.

"They asked me about doing the job and I knocked them back . . . and then they came back with a proposal regarding their sports club," Northey said.

Now he's back at the helm and, he says, his passion has also returned.

"I suppose you mellow over the years of coaching," he said.

But has he mellowed? "We'll see . . . I'm sure I've still got that bit of venom I can throw out.

"Hopefully I can educate these kids well because they are a very young side, they haven't had any success for about 18 years, I believe."

A successful Victorian country coach, Northey coached four clubs in the AFL from 1985 to 1998 before coaching Broadbeach in Queensland and South Fremantle in Western Australia.
