Bloody good time 19/6/2014
Great get-together in Terang last weekend for a reunion of the Bloods’ 1960s U18 players, including the 1962-64 sides which suffered only one defeat and a draw in three seasons. Frank Maguire, who coached the sides, was presented with mounted photographs, much to the 94-y-o’s delight. One of the organisers, Mick Harris, sent me this moving report:
“On Friday night when he arrived at the Middle (Hotel) with Terry I took him around and due to his eyesight failing introduced him to all the blokes that were there. When I introduced Charlie Payne to him, Charlie got a little bit emotional, which just goes a little way to showing the respect a person like Charlie has for his former mentor.”
