Lakes United Old Boys 2014
Another great day was held at Cahill Oval yesterday, Old boys turned up from everywhere to join in the traditional get together and there was no shortage of entertainment on the field and off with the amber fluid flowing nicely from the tent. Tales were told and times were reminisced as the current stock gave it there best to Kurri, the boys form the bush unfortunately snatched a try with about 10sec to go and grabbed the match.
This year we celebrate the 40th year since Lakes United won their second premiership (1974) 27 years after their first title win in their debut season of 1947. This years retro jersey (Sponsored By AUSTRALIAN BLOODSTOCK ) will acknowledge the late great Allan Thomson (Capt/coach 1974 / 75 Premiers ) It will feature a photo of Allan on the front of a jersey of similar design of that worn by the 1974 side
The response to the first year under our “Looking to the Future” plan has had mixed results; On the ‘plus’ side it has shown that Lakes Old Boys have the potential to be a major part in the future success/survival of Lakes United;Whilst on the ‘minus’ side non-financial members still out-number financial members by 3 to 1. We need to reverse this to reach that full potential.
