G'day everyone.  I'd just like to wish you all the best for Christmas and hope that next year is a great year for you and your respective footy clubs.

Looking forward to a bit more banter over 2024 with the standalone clubs hopefully the big improvers!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes! 

That book is a good find UptheDolohins. I've got that amongst the collection as well.

It's on my bookshelf, along with many other books about the VFA

It's a fascinating read so far. Includes a timeline of the VFA/VFL up to the early 2000s, plus a section covering every club that had ever played in the VFA up to that time. 

I was also fortunate to get a copy of AFL 23 as well, which I'm quite enjoy. Glad to see the three big state leagues are properly represented this time around. Played my first season game earlier today and it ended up being a thriller.

welcome anytime aj - i'm an avid collector of footy and cricket books and photos, including a book and photo signed by Keith Miller and photos signed by Booby Skilton, Richard Osbourne, Micky Conlan and the great Barry Round of course - i also have a collection of VFA Recorders going back to 1923

Wally, would absolutely love to come have a look mate. I'm not really a collector, but I love to look at what other people have accumulated. The collection of records would have some great reading in it too I imagine.

The VFA Recorders are a great read and those of the 1930's and 1940's were better and had more photos than those in the 1950's - 1980's. I have a complete set for 1939 and and only missing two from 1945, both premiership years for the Seagulls

Finally agree on something you said and can't believe that I am agreeing with you but yes we can help Northport out with more banter in 24. 

Additionally I trust you'll be around the page to keep me honest 😀
