1979 ESCORT CUP GRAND FINAL

COLLINGWOOD VS HAWTHORN
(V.F.L. PARK)

EVERY COLLINGWOOD PREMIERSHIP SINCE 1958 HAS INCLUDED ONE OF THE SHAW CLAN.

1990 WAS CAPTAINED BY TONY SHAW, WHO ALSO WON THE 'NORM SMITH MEDAL' FOR BEST ON THE GROUND.

2010 SAW TONY'S NEPHEW, RHYCE, PERFORM THE 'SMOTHER OF THE CENTURY' STOPPING A CERTAIN NICK REIWOLDT GOAL...AN ACT THAT MANY BELIEVE WAS THE CATALYST BEHIND THE MAGPIES PREMIERSHIP THAT DAY.

THERE WAS ANOTHER SENIOR PREMIERSHIP THAT NOT MANY PEOPLE TALK ABOUT.
THE 1979 ESCORT CUP PREMIERSHIP.
COLLINGWOODS FIRST SENIOR FLAG IN ANY COMPETITION SINCE 1958.
AND THE CAPTAIN THAT EVENING WAS RAY SHAW, FATHER OF RHYCE AND BROTHER OF TONY.
RAY WAS ALSO A WINNER OF THE 'LISTON TROPHY' WHEN HE PLAYED AT PRESTON FC IN THE OLD V.F.A.

NOTICE DURING THE PRESENTATION OF THE TROPHY TO RAY, A HUGE STUFF UP BY THE V.F.L. (NOW A.F.L.).
THE RIBBONS ON THE TROPHY ARE BROWN AND GOLD, COLLINGWOOD'S OPPONENTS THAT NIGHT.
NOT A BLACK & WHITE RIBBON TO BE FOUND!
IT IS A DISGRACE THAT SOMETHING LIKE THAT COULD HAPPEN, AND OBVIOUSLY PROVED THAT NO-ONE EXPECTED THE MAGPIES TO WIN.

NO-ONE EXCEPT THE MAGPIE ARMY!

AND WATCH THE ARMY INVADE V.F.L. PARK AT THE END OF THE MATCH!
SOMETHING ELSE YOU WILL NEVER SEE AGAIN IN THE V.F.L./A.F.L.

MEMORIES!!!

RAY 'RICK' SHAW POLISHES OFF A BOTTLE OF BUBBLY WATCHED BY HIS GOOD MATE, AND FUTURE BROWNLOW MEDAL WINNER, PETER MOORE. 

THE TROPHY...COMPLETE WITH HAWTHORN RIBBONS

 

 

THE ARMY INVADES THE GROUND AFTER THE FINAL SIREN.
THE PLAYERS ARE SOMEWHERE IN THERE AS WELL.
