This Day in History: 1986-08-17

Jim (Spot) Watson and committee organized a Toodyay hockey and football players’ reunion at the Toodyay Showgrounds. More than 150 former players and their families attended on the day of the last home game football match. One of the oldest former football players to attend was Doug Lloyd (then aged 87), who played in Toodyay in 1922.
