Celebrations for Bulldogs

By Grace Jones

GNOWANGERUP Football Club will be celebrating 100 years since their first official season in 1917 on August 19.

To celebrate the occasion, the club will be playing their final game for the season and will use the end-of-season wrap-up as the big shindig.

During the league game against Newdegate, an oval-side bar and marquee will be available to players both past and present as well as club sponsors.

Club president Lachlan Lewis said the night will be a chance for old players to reminisce about the old days, and for locals to celebrate their club’s history.

“It’s a pretty special occasion to celebrate,” he said.

“We’ve had heaps of calls this year about the centenary, and we hope this will live up to the excitement.

“We’ve had heaps of interest from past players, so it’ll be a great opportunity to have a reunion of sorts.”

Plenty of old GFC memorabilia will be on display, as well as a helmsman style auction for 25 centenary jumpers that the club has been wearing this season.

The club will be catering for all generations on the night, with Perth band HUGE performing as well.

GFC would like to urge Gnowangerup locals to attend the celebration.
