Mundulla Football Club celebrates premierships

Mundulla Football Club celebrated an amazing run of success on Saturday as it welcomed back just over 80 players who played in the golden era for the Tigers.

The club won seven A grade premierships in a row from 1994 to 2000 while the B grade won six straight from 1997 to 2002.

Mundulla had special guernseys made up for the match which highlighted each of the 13 premierships.

It was fitting that Saturday’s opposition was Padthaway as it was against Lions that Mundulla won the first of many premierships.

Jumpers were then auctioned off after the match which raised an astounding $18,000 for the club which will go towards a brand new electronic scoreboard next year.

Nick Davis was the only player from the golden era to play on Saturday while Adam Obst was out injured for the Tigers.

Six players, Michael Hunt, Roger Hunt, Chris King, Michael King, Brett Staude and Nick Williams, all played in each of the seven of the A grade premierships. 

The reunion carried on into the night with a packed house at the footy club. Many of the present players said it was one of the best nights they have had at the club.

Many of the ex-players came from all over Australia to celebrate the milestone at the footy club.

Ex-players from the golden era then re-emerged on Sunday morning for a breakfast at the footy club before heading to the Mundulla Hotel for dinner on Sunday night.
