Welcome back to “Crackers Chronicles”.  This week we will trace some of the history of the Old Scotch Football Club by recounting the contributions made by some of our greatest players.


Back on 5 August 2000, at a dinner to celebrate our club’s 80th anniversary, the club announced its “Team of the Century”.  However, that was seventeen years ago and unfortunately a number of more recent players missed out on selection.  Hec Ingram’s Best Team, previously reported, covered our best players before World War II, while Manson Russel’s Best Team covered the 1950s – 1990s, so I thought I may try to select another post-war best team that I have named the “Old Scotch Reserve Team of the Century” to include players up to 2000 ...
