Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
The Southland B Team was announced in 1980 - and although a lot of these players were unlucky not to make the Southland A Team they would have been proud to be where they were. Sometimes it does not take much to get a break and you always have to be ready for it when it comes.
Sole selector/coach Bill Welsh named the team as; Kevin Burns, Pat O'Brien, Peter Howley, Stuart Jackson, Kelvin Farrington, Bill McDonald, Wayne Stewart, Phillip Stevenson, Murray Collins, Trevor Bokser, Sam Anderson, Barry Low, Bill French, Barry Flynn, Jim Fortune, Roger McRae, Bruce Lewis, Barry , David Lamb, Dave Robinson.
Pat O'Brien on the wing must have been unlucky not to make the A team but will be able show his wares and gain valuable experience. Peter Howley for Old Boys has been sound all season.
Kelvin Farrington was named originally in the A squad but with such a big squad has been put down to get game time.
First Five Eight Bill McDonald was one of the key players in the Eastern Comp and a keen player has a lot of followers. Sam Anderson has played well for Pirates this season and his experience and toughness will hopefully rub off on some of the junior players.
