What is the round & date of the Port v Willy game.. I want to reserve the day
16th of June 2019 at 2.10pm Channel 7 game Black rocker.
I think its the same jumper they wore against us last year Billy, it looks a bit like the old Waverley jumper
Wally.. I like the irony of the photo
Yes blackrocker, sadly it was the only photo i could find of the Port heritage jumper ....
I believe it will be a different jumper this year. Rumours are either a Sandridge jumper prior to the VFA and being named Port Melbourne, the other is a 1930s jumper similar to the Port Colts jumper with a PMFC monogram on the front (similar to this years clash jumper.) I'll post up photos of the clash jumper in a separate thread.
Sandridge as in the team that I used to play at Lagoon oval that was affectionately nicknamed "the vegies" ?

I still prefer the name Sandridge to Port Melb and Emerald Hill to South Melb
They changed their names to cash in the Melbourne name during the Gold Rush era.
Just a little bit of history.
This seasons night match was not the first between Port and Willy for points they played under lights a the Lake Oval South Melb on Wed April 24th 1957 which Williamstown won by 2 pts.I was there with my father and from memory the crowd was 10,000.Being at South it was almost a home game for the Port supporters.This was the era when both teams doninated the VFA.
Billy, u are correct, and i have a good story to add about that game, from a guy now in his 80's that made his debut for Willi that night, i will tell more tomorrow
