2018 REUNION - 1988/1993 Review
26 May 18

10 Club Presidents

Great turnout from the members of West Preston's first A Grade DVFL Premiership in 1988 and first double in 1993. Anthony Dobson flew in from Darwin and led proceedings, Clifford came from Far North Queensland Mark Schiferle from up north and John Tex Hogan from Mirboo North. There were a couple of late scratching with Craig Davis flight aborted due to a recent promotion David Arthur had sick children and  a couple just didn't front. The day started with the presentation of no 18 to 3rd generation Aidan Tilley now we all know how important the Tilley name is to West Preston but did we forget how dry Laurie's humour is. Following this current coach Rob Maiorana addressed the members imploring how important it is to engage in the future but embrace the past as the club’s history is very important in building its future. Forwards Frosty Miller and Mick Laidler were wondering why no one was anchored in the goal square. Davey Owen looked like he could still play.

Throughout the day we had 10 senior presidents grace us including Brian Flynn, Laurie Tilley, Kevin Gill, Tony Eley, Hank Mellerick, Paddy McVeigh, John Toniolo, Graham Mills, Paul McInerney, Luciano Condurso, John Schott was an apology due to his mother's health as well as several junior presidents John Barker, Paddy Irving & Sean Golledge. All Senior Coaches of the premierships were there including Andrew Smith, Tony Hayes, Mark Duckworth, Paddy McVeigh. Later in the night proficient liars took to the fore with Scotty Pywell leading the charge. The day was hugely successful with many commenting on how great it was to catch up. Although many attended there were still too many missing. The club is grateful to those that attended but would love to see more of you more often as the challenge of competing successfully in Division 1 increases.
