Some September joy for Essendon – in the 2013 Victorian Super Rules Over 35s Reserves Grand Final at Casey Fields (Oval 3). Williamstown supporter Rob Klemm noted: “Williamstown were outsized by Essendon, who stopped many scoring thrusts with towering defensive marks. It was a great game of footy, and as with all Willi sides, there was no concession until the final siren. The Seniors lost their match, also against Essendon, later in the afternoon.”
Rob’s photo captures some curiosities. There are two scoreboards – one, unused, is made of perspex; the other, primarily steel and plastic, almost tricks the eyes with its shapes and shadows.
Furthermore, the scoreboard and timekeepers’ room is sponsored by ‘Plywood & Timber Traders’, yet appears to be made pretty much of steel and metal.
Rob Klemm is coach of the Williamstown FIDA teams and is also a very keen Fremantle fan.
