Footy flashback

Thanks to Wade Gleeson for this photo from the 1959 TFL grand final
between New Norfolk and Hobart, when the Eagles were wearing the white
guernsey that was recreated for last weekend's SFL heritage game with Hobart.
The Tigers were victorious in the 1959 game but the tables were turned at
weekend when the Eagles had a big win. In this photo are New Norfolk
players Don Hume (1958 and 59 best and fairest) and L. Ackerley, and
Hobart's D. Powell and Trevor Leo. Leo of course went on to coach
New Norfolk  to its first TFL premiership win in 1968.
