Seymour Football Netball Club held a full club reunion on Saturday night, with more than 100 people turning up to recognise and reflect on the club’s success.

The night served as a 10-year reunion for the footballers’ seniors and thirds flags from 2007, while it was the 30-year milestone for the club’s A and B-grades’ 1987 netball triumph.

Current senior football coach Brent Colbert said it was a top night.

‘‘The club and the organisers nailed it. It was a top night and great seeing all the guys again,’’ he said.

‘‘They highlighted the ’07 premierships, and I think 16 of the 21 seniors blokes from that year were there, and 15 of the 21 from the thirds were there, so it was a great turnout.

‘‘Bluey Shelton, ‘Nugget’ (Alistair Greenshields), Peter O’Keefe and Chris Martin got up and spoke about the premierships of 1991 and ’82, and it was great for the crowd to hear that history. Everyone in the room just stopped in silence.’’
