Corryong, Victoria

Corryong Recreation Reserve, in north-east Victoria, is home to two football/netball clubs, the Corryong Demons and the Federal Swans.

A 2017 ABC Backroads segment tells us the clubs’ clubrooms are seperated  by all of eight metres.

Not surprisingly there’s a fair bit of very local rivalry, going back 130 years.

The photos here are by former Federal Swans player Nick Cadle.

For a close-up view of the classic old scoreboard, including the timekeeper ringing the bell, follow Nick’s wise words and check out the 2017 ABC Backroads segment.

You won’t regret it.
