This week's Mt Erica Hotel newsletter.
De La Salles’ success at Under 19 level is unmatched and unlikely to be surpassed any time soon. Consider this record - in the highest division over the last nine years we have played in eight grand finals for six premierships. The only year since 2004 we have not made a grand final we finished third after narrowly losing the preliminary final. This was the one that started it all. For many years this premiership photo was thought to be lost but the 2012 Under 19 premiership photo gathering led to this picture being located.
Looking at this group it strikes you that so many of these players went on to make major contributions around the club. In fact quite a few are still running around and have represented the club with distrinction. Amongst the group of players featured we have the current 3rds coach, current 19 Blues coach and a seconds assistant coach. Two Woodrow medals, several big V jumpers and a few decent VFL careers. Dave Madigan went on to coach the seniors, team manager Paul Lourey is still one of our most dedicated clubmen and Pat Maher continues to be a fine club servant.
For the record De La Salle 6.3.39 defeated St Kevins 3.9.27 on a wet and wild day at Parkdale.
