WERRIBEE has fallen at the penultimate hurdle four times in the past six seasons.

But new coach John Lamont, as passionate and knowledgeable as they come, quickly points to achievements often glossed over.

The 45-year-old was a member of the Tigers’ one and only premiership team from 1993 — he described himself as an outside midfielder and forward in those days — and he is keen to add more silverware to the trophy cabinet.

But Lamont does not promote a win-at-all-costs mentality.

“We haven’t had the ultimate success in our competition, but we’ve got to the prelim final and we’ve had players drafted,” Lamont said. “If you’re doing that, then you’re filling a big part of your brief as a footy club.

“It’s a special thing to have been involved in a premiership here. It’s also disappointing, at the same time, that it is the only one.
