NAR Nar Goon Football Club will kick off a series of events for past players and officials at its first home game of the 2014 Ellinbank and District Football League season against Catani on Saturday 12 April.
The events, dubbed the Days of Goon Glory, will be held at the first home game of each season and all past players of the club are invited to join in the celebrations.
Each year the event will be themed around one of the club’s past successes.
This year to kick off the Goon will be celebrating the 90th anniversary of the club’s first senior football flag in 1924, when the Goon, under founding president Jack Spencer and captain Jerry Hogan, beat Warragul and went on to beat Central Gippsland premiers Sale to claim the title of Gippsland champions as well.
