Past Players Day are for all people that have pulled on the Panther jumper, been a coach or administrator and all supporters. It is a celebration that we have every year to catch up and remember great times that have shaped this great Club. We also celebrate anniversaries of Premierships, this year due to COVID not allowing up to celebrate in 2020 there will be a few extra.
20th Anniversary of the 2000 Premiership against Watsonia and Reserves against Macleod
25th Anniversary of the 1995 Premiership against West Preston
50th Anniversary of the 1971 Reserves against Greensborough
50th Anniversary of the 1970 Premiership against Diamond Creek
90th Anniversary of the 1930 Premiership against Heidelberg
This year the Past Players Day will be held on Saturday 15th May in our game against Watsonia. So, if you were part of the Premierships or part of the Panther of the years please drop in and catch up with fellow Panthers for what should be a great game.
