In the Beginning
The year 1980, the team read as follows:

Pembo, Tex, Hilton
Blox, Big Al
Bill Burrows, Steve Price, Chris Watts,
Jan Ullah, Tom Power, John Littleford, Tom Guise
Dave Adams, Roy Pugsley, Brian Wood.

The final saw the Old Yards thrash Dixonians by 3 points to nil, the points coming from a talented young centre.

Thirty-Five years on, Bert Black's dream is still the most popular pre-season tournament in the area.
