Dustbowl joined our Club this year as a volunteer to help with our home game BBQ’s and club fundraisers.
His connection to the club is that he was coached by Ray Tunbridge (Grandfather of Josh) at Port Kembla in the 1970’s. Dustbowl was a tough and gritty fullback and played in Port Kembla's premiership winning side in 1975; the first year of the Senior Illawarra AFL competition. If you have a spare hour or two, ask him how Port beat Wollongong by one point in the Grand Final after being beaten by them by 30 goals in the first game of the year, and by 10 goals in the major semi-final.
Dustbowl is a selfless volunteer for our club, and has been an integral part of making our home game and Bunnings BBQ's a great success this season. Well done Dustbowl. Your contribution to our club is very much appreciated and we hope to listen to many more 'stories around the BBQ'.
