40 Year Club Reunion “Alan Stevens Coaching Era”

Posted on

To Former Players,

2015 marks 40 years since Alan Stevens retired from Coaching after 10 years at the top.  The committee considered this an ideal year to celebrate the success of that era with Alan by having a reunion of the players involved along with the players of the Second Grade A team of the same period who also had a very successful period.

On Saturday June 13th the Premiers play Varsity A in the V.G. Cavanagh Memorial match and the Magpie Colts play University Blue in the Ross Mee Memorial both at Bathgate Park, an ideal day to get together.

Presently we are trying to contact as many players as possible from those years with a view to finalizing plans for the day.  Attached is a list of names and known addresses (see below). Do you know the contact addresses of any of the missing or any other players who should be invited?  If so please contact any of the undersigned so we may make contact.

Contacts   Bill Somerville      ph. 455 3916 or 0276712139

                  Blair Crawford     ph. 456 1200wk,   email blair@edgarcentre.co.nz  027 4878489

                  Roy Daniels         ph. 456 1200wk,   email r.m.daniels@orcon.net.nz or 03 552 0415


Unfortunately the Club are missing team photos of 1970 and 1971, if anyone has these photos could you please contact Roy Daniels at the very earliest.  Billy Somerville is also keen to track down any programmes of the period.

It is intended to commence the proceedings at approximately 12 noon in the club rooms with a luncheon followed by viewing of the games and participation in the after match.

A Friday evening function is also being arranged once numbers are confirmed.

An early indication of your intentions would be appreciated by emailing Roy Daniels on the above email address. In the meantime please set aside the above date – we look forward to seeing you.


NB: This date will also be the “Old Members Day” where all past players (who mightn’t attend the Club as often as in the past) are encouraged to join us for the day.

Roy Daniels
