It didn’t take long before I was quickly reminded that there was a mistake in last week’s history about Duffs record. The correct stat is that in the last 3 years the B Grade has only lost 3 games under Duffs coaching, which gives him a winning percentage of 94.8% , even more amazing!
This week we celebrate the 2018 B Grade Premiership on the day that I had the privilege of presenting the premiership medals. This goes down as one of the most treasured memories of my 46 year association with the club, particularly presenting the medals to Monkey and Dags for their 5th Club Premiership (Now they have 6!) You can read all about the 7 point win from the Coaches mouth and also check out the stats from the 2018 season on the website. A reminder that the 2019 stats are also now on the website thanks to Monkey and Dags.
2018 B Grade Premiership
This week we celebrate the Clubs fourth double premiership. It was where it all began for Duff when the B Grade went through the 2017 season undefeated and earnt the right to challenge arch rival Para Hills in the Grand Final at Payneham Oval. At the start the game was delayed for 30 minutes while Nico was taken from the ground in an Ambulance after one of the worst incidents ever seen on the footy field. Despite this the B’s went on to win easily by 40 points. The A Grade under the astute coaching of Kym Hillard then followed it up with a magnificent win , also over Para Hills to complete a Dog Wash. Kym’s story about the number of excuses he has heard on the footy field, follows. Enjoy.
