The club will incorporate a 1964 premiership reunion as part of the past players and supporters function during the round 12 Central Highlands Football League clash with Skipton at Wallace.

Springbank’s 1964 flag was the first of five straight in the Clunes Football League, with the senior team losing just two games for the entire season under captain-coach Vally Pascoe.

Springbank won all five grand finals during that period against Clunes.

The club is hoping to hold the “Old Tigers Day” on the second home game of each season in future years.

For further information, contact Springbank vice-president David Toohey on 0418 557 017.
