I saw him a couple of weeks ago...said he'd only been to one or two Port Melbourne games and just stood in the outer...think you're right about not liking the fanfare...he still is in remarkably good physical shape

Sandy. The most successful club in the past 30 years

I remember Fred went on the footy show about 10 years ago I wish I could find it on YouTube somewhere.

From memory he did a interview.
Good mates with sammy Newman.

No, but I did often put in some weather details, etc. Now, to find the Recorders!

I assume you also read the later posts, particularly #14.

Moorabbin played at Linton Street in 1983. Maurie Fields was president. (I attended Sunday 19 June. Moorabbin 30-28-208 v Yarraville 8-14-62. Umpires Budge and Casey. About 300 people there. Cold, cloudy, calm.) St Kilda charged $1000 a week for Moorabbin to have the privilege of playing on its home ground. This was unviable.
In 1984 Moorabbin played its first home games (Seconds and Firsts) at McKinnon, on Saturday 8 April. (Moorabbin 20-13-133 v Waverley 19-19-133. Umpires Barry Fitzpatrick and Peter Marshall. Sunny, mild, very strong wind. Kangaroos Seconds won.)
I'm pretty sure the McKinnon ground was only used the once. Bentleigh was apparently not available that weekend. From then, home games were at Bentleigh (as in post No 6).

Yes cooky is sadly a hard hard man to catch it seems. It's such a shame as he has a lot to offer still to local/vfl footy.

Ironically, the umpire, Peter Marshall, is now coach for the McKinnon Cricket Club that plays at the above ground.
As an aside, growing up in the 1970's watching VFA footy, Fred Cook was a genuine legend of the game. Full forwards (Radojevic, K Smith, Hunt, Fotheringham, Cooper, Miller, Serafini) and Ruckmen (Pepe, Wenn, Aanensen, Martin, Van der Beek) seemed to always have the profile, particularly on Channel 0's coverage, but Cook had the biggest profile.

Hmmmmm that is going to be a tough one. Perhaps try and get in contact with him. You could try and Facebook him or call him and explain how much it would mean to you.
