A Lion in The Coup
11 May 18



This Saturday Aidan Tilley becomes the 3rd generation Tilley to play for West Preston Lakeside A Grade team. Aidan is currently listed with Coburg in the VFL. He comes this week as part of his development and we hope to see him return to VFL duties in the near future. 
The Tilley name is one of the most famous names at West with his grandfather Laurie the closest thing to an Emperor you could get. He has been President for 11 Years as well as many other roles, A Grade Premiership Captain 1968, A grade Premiership Coach 1974 Total 134 Games. The club has named a trophy after Laurie for anyone who has contributed outstanding service to the club. Ron (Laurie’s brother) 89 games
Paul,  Aidan’s father, played 152 games (106 A grade) won 1992 DVFL Best and fairest Premiership player 1993, Played 25 AFL games for Fitzroy and St Kilda. Paul also coached the Senior club. Uncle Gary 141 Games, brother Jake 70 games. Along with that Mrs Margaret Tilley worked alongside Laurie in many facets of the club, Aidan’s Mum Sam has also worked with the club whilst Paul was playing, coaching and in her kids junior games. 
Aidan has played 107 Games so far with West before moving to the Calder Cannons then going onto Coburg in 2017 debuting with Mark Of The Week.
All six players have played 693 games, which includes junior games…… maybe a few more as we dont have junior games for Laurie or Ron.
We wish Aidan all the best on Saturday and he gets his wish to play for the club his Pop played for.
