Graeme Wright Memorial Cup

on .

Sandhurst won the Graeme Wright Memorial Cup in the traditional game between the Bloods and Dragons on Saturday.  This is the 18th year the teams have played for the cup.

The Cup honours the late Wright, who had a long involvement both on and off the field at South Bendigo before he died in February, 1998, four years after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. 

Graeme played 138 senior games for the Bloods, mainly as a key defender.

He captain-coached the Bloods in 1983 and 1986 and was described as a player who played “hard and fair.”

His playing career was prematurely cut short in 1986 after suffering a knee injury, but he maintained a strong involvement in the game.

He also coached the Bendigo Football’s inter-league team twice, as well as the Bloods’ under-18s and served various off-field roles at South Bendigo.

Strath Storm win Wirama Shield

on .

The Smoking Ceremony at Flight Centre Park on Monday was a fantastic sight. More photos can be viewed by clicking the link on the home page.

Congratulations to Strathfieldsaye FNC who won both the Wirama Shield for football and the netball trophy. The best player medals were awarded by the designers of the jumpers to the Storm’s Lachlan Sharp and South Bendigo’s Jake Smythe. In netball the best player medals went to Storm’s Kate Burton and South Bendigo’s Stephanie Goode.

The Strathfieldsaye FNC jumper was designed by Drew Berick who is a descendant of Dja Dja Wurrung ancestor Henry Harmony Nelson.  Drew's design is Mindi the rainbow serpent which is a significant creator spirit of Dja Dja Wurrung people.  Mindi created much of the landscape and waterways of the Dja Dja Wurrung Country.

The South Bendigo FNC jumper was designed by Ron Kerr Jnr, better known as Thunda, who is a Dja Dja Wurrung man.  Thunda’s design signifies the people who were removed from their homelands and the journey across all lands leading Dja Dja Wurrung people home to Country.

An Auskick and Net Set Go! Program was also conducted on the day.
