The Eltham Football Club will be hosting five Premiership Reunions and our annual Past Players and Officials Day on Sat 13 Jul 19 at the home game v Diamond Creek. To make the day a better one I need contact details for some lost Panthers. If you know anyone in the below teams or someone that played for the Panther in the past and should come down for a catch up please email Andrew.Hall1@bigpond.com so I can make contact with them.
The Premierships we will be celebrating are 70 years – 1949. 50 Years – 1969. 45 Years – 1974 Seniors and Reserves and 30 years 1989. See below the teams that played in those premierships.
Please help us make the day huge by assisting me with information required. Contact me via email for any questions you need answering.
