Strange but true facts of the Blue and Whites
Secretary of the Angaston Football Club for 21 years, Mr Anthony Schubert compiled a brief history of the Angaston Football Club into a book in 2004 to celebrate 125 years of the club.
Angaston Football Club, the strange but true facts of the Blue and Whites, provided a brief insight into the diverse history of the club as well as a year by year account of the club from its first recorded match in 1876 until 2004.
As well as supplying a detailed account of each year the club has been in competition, the book contains interesting information such as Family Affairs, which details the families who supplied numerous players/workers to the club, players who have debuted at A-Grade level at an early age and a Believe it Or Not section.
The Believe It Or Not Section offers interesting snippets into the club’s history, including facts such as on August 26, 2000, a brawl by players and spectators after the final siren at the Angaston v. Barossa District match at Angaston resulted in both clubs being fined $1,000.
Earlier this year, Mr Schubert compiled an updated book on the history of the Angaston Football Club, providing a follow up to the initial edition released five years ago.
Highlights of the updated book include the club’s Team of the Century and the Long Service League, which recognises the efforts of individuals who have played for Angaston for a long period of time.
One of the most notable include Mr Matthew Doecke, who, on May 30 this year, became the first Barossa, Light and Gawler footballer to play 300 A-Grade games.
Both the books detailing the rich history of the Angaston Football Club are available for purchase through the club. $10 for the new book or $15 including postage and the 125 year book is $15 or $20 postage. Both books can be purchased for $20 or $25 inc. postage. Box 166 Angaston or email firstname.lastname@example.org
