The main club playing out of Geeveston actually went by the name of nearby locality Kermandie. Unfortunately the seniors went into recess a couple of years ago (2110), the sad end to 127 years of history is partly told here http://www.theage.com.au/afl/afl-news/wacko-jacko-and-the-wizz-cant-save-kermandie-20100409-ryyp.html and at http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Southern_Football_League_%28Tasmania%29&oldid=436988944#Demise_of_Kermandie

    • I was there at Kermandie today. Cygnet hosted former TFL club Hobart Tigers in an SFL match down there, won by Hobart by 17 points. Took some great footage of the inner workings of the scoreboard, the numbers are on large wooden wheels.
