FINAL REPORT FOR SEASON 2014
FOUR GRAND FINALS. FOUR FLAGS.
What a great day for the club. In short this is what happened…….
Lilydale 14B defeated Knox by 49 points. 1st premiership cup for the day. Congratulations to John Gordon and the boys. They played a fantastic game and deserved the win. It was a great start to the day and the nerves were jumping as I drove from game to game.
Then the 17 Premiers, 17 C and 17 D played their hearts out. I was watching Lachy’s boys as they were on the way to their 4th win in this year’s finals. They defeated St Simons by 30 points and to say I was proud of the boys and particularly Lachy was an understatement.
I had a few anxious moments waiting for results at the other 17s games to come through. The first result known was the 17 premiers. Grant Shanks and the boys defeated Vermont and then three cups were ours and then finally the news came through that Tim Wilson’s 17C team had defeated Ringwood by 1 point to claim the 4th premiership for the club in one day. Well done to Tim. He has coached in 3 grand finals and never won a premiership for Lilydale. I reminded him of this fact prior to the game and informed him that he was on notice!!!! Malcom Blight only had three goes at Geelong before he was sacked.
This was my proudest day as President of LJFC. The song never sounded sweeter and the mission for 2014 was complete. What a fantastic result by all the players and coaches. The future is shining bright for our club.
It was great to meet back at the rooms and catch up with all the boys and their parents and have a couple of celebratory drinks and bask in the glory.
Well done to the whole club and especially my committee that work so hard. The results today have shown that hard work does pay off.
The Presentation Day is next Sunday 24th of August, at The York on Lilydale. I look forward to a chat with parents, friends and enjoying the boys company for the last club event for 2014.
This is what it is all about. The boys will never forget this day and neither should they…….
