Oakleigh vs Camberwell 1979 2nd Div GF

Hi all,

I am an ex Oakleigh player (Russell Curtain) who played full back on Gary Hammond for Oakleigh in the 1979 GF loss to Camberwell. I was a 19 y/o who was awarded Oakleighs best player on the day and subsequently made vice captain the following year (David Wenn was captain). In that game I was actually hit in the head with a full can of beer thrown fron the crowd. I fell to the ground and suffered some concussion. The can was thrown at Gary hammond by an ex Oakleigh player!!!

I retired at the end of 1980 with approx 65 senior games at the age of 20

I am trying to find a copy of the GF of which I have never seen. This would be the only footage that I know of me playing and would love to show to my two boys now aged 20 and 17.

Any help would be appreciated

I reckon George Paras (known as VFA here) would have a copy of that... paging VFA, are you there?

Hi ExOak, I do have the full second half which was a crossover game from channel 0.
I can copy this for you no problems on to DVD.

ExOak, I also have the last few minutes of the 1979 second semi between Oakleigh v Camberwell where Oakleigh won. It was the crossover with Craig Kelly commentating and no more than a few minutes footage.
