Not only will North Ballarat go on in the VFL next year, but so will great ruckman Orren Stephenson. Big O has signed a new deal for 2017.

Chat around that Andrew Moore is heading to Box Hill Hawks, boosting the midfield. Played 55 AFL games for Port Adelaide, 5 for Richmond.

Tbh I don't think we gave Moore a fair chance. He was really starting to show something

Wodonga identity Jack Eames has died, aged 94

David Johnston
Border Mail
18 Jan 2017, 5 p.m.


JACK Eames, a World War II veteran, Richmond player (1946), and Wodonga Bulldogs' star footballer, has died, aged 94.

One of the city's most well-known identities, Eames rose to the rank of sergeant after joining the Army Ordnance Corp in 1941 and served in New Guinea where he is credited with helping establish three spare parts units.

He was discharged in 1946 and immediately joined VFL club Richmond despite still being based on the Border.

Eames played 14 senior matches for the Tigers and famously hopped aboard the Spirit Of Progress train each Saturday morning to travel to Melbourne and play.

Often there would be no seats available on the train and he was forced to stand until spots became available at Seymour.

One of his fondest memories at Richmond was playing in a drought-breaking win against Collingwood at Victoria Park under legendary coach Jack Dyer.

Even though he played only one season for Richmond, Eames kept close contact with the club and is credited with helping the Tigers recruit John Perry, Geoff Strang, Barry Richardson and Kevin Smith from the Ovens and Murray area.

Cheltenham coach Des Ryan has brought in his brother and fellow ex-Tiger Stevie as an assistant coach.

Stevie Ryan coached St Bedes Mentone Tigers to the VAFA Premier B grand final last year but was surprisingly let go.

Young and vibrant, Cheltenham finished with seven wins, 10 losses and one draw last season under Ryan.

RIP.

-------------------------

Coastal sporting great Ray Stokes died over the weekend at the age of 92.

The all-round talents of Stokes, 92, seemingly knew no bounds, captaining Tasmania in both football and cricket.

His deeds with the Sherrin saw him wear the yellow and black of Richmond 93 times from 1946-51, playing alongside his brother Jervis at times, impressing those in at Punt Road so much he was described by the great Jack Dyer as “the best thing to cross the Bass Strait”.

Stokes and Dyer were not only teammates, but good friends.

Brendon Gale, himself an example of a Coaster to succeed for the Tigers on field who is now the club’s chief executive, the connection runs much deeper than just football, having known him since the mid-1980s as a neighbour in Burnie.

“He was older than my father, but I knew just by the way that my father (Don) spoke about him that he was just a highly respected figure in sport generally,’’ Gale said.

“It wasn’t until I got to Richmond (Gale played 244 games for the Tigers between 1990-2001) that I realised how highly respected he was here, as the guys who played around that time held him in such a high regard as he was so tough and talented.

“He was a very humble person, disciplined and well organised person.

“He was always in really good condition and was a fitness fanatic, and he’d always be out walking or running most mornings or playing golf.

“He was a real product of his generation, pretty hard, frugal, personally disciplined and full of integrity.”
