    The Grand Cannon

    By Jake Trbojevic & Barry Ross

    Football clubs are founded on their history. Their history helps forge friendships that bonds blokes together for life and memories that last an eternity.

    An unfortunate reality with a Club that has lasted for the best part of 67 years is that when you look through the history records, many great players are no longer with us.

    But for a former soldier who played in our first ever competition match, the memories and recollections of our innaugural day will never leave him.

    His name is Ernie Cannon and he is the oldest living Sea Eagle. He will celebrate his 94th birthday on the 27th of this month.

    The link works perfectly for me. :-/

    You are clicking on where it says:

    "Read the full article at seaeagles.com.au"

    (which is the link) aren't you? [​IMG]

    Is anyone else having problems getting the link to work?

    Oh yeah, and about Jake, he normally writes a bit about the upcoming NSW & Holden Cup matches with the announcement/publication of the weekly team lists on the seaeagles.com.au website.

    Nice story. I wonder if anyone knows how Wally O'Connell is going? Says here he was born in 1923. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wally_O%27Connell

    I think i heard Zorba say on 2KY once that O'Connell molded Fulton who molded Toovey who molded DCE.
