Letter from John Ottaway

– Joint Founder and First Life Member 1982
 

The following letter was received from John after he made contact with the club in 2010.

“It was really good to have a yarn with Les Heckingbottom from the Falcons [Cardies].The hard work that Frank Butler and myself put in for those first couple of years [regularly beaten by 20 goals or more] has certainly paid off. I have made lifelong mates because of the club and at least a couple of times a year meet up with Danny Malone, Tom Benkovic, Peter Baldwin, Phil Smith, Tony Hogan ect we have a friendship that only footy clubs can bring. It’s great to hear that the club still has contact with Shane and Karen Davy, terrific stalwarts of the club plus John Sullivan, Mitch Thomas, Mark Searle and any of the other originals. I hope the club fosters junior footy. I know Mitch Thomas was doing some work there and that’s the lifeline of footy. I am still coaching kids at the Belmont Junior Footy Club. I hope the book and photos I’ve sent up are of some interest and I would like them back sometime. I think it is fantastic what you people have done with the book and website. As long as there are good dedicated people like yourselves the Mighty Falcons are in good hands for the next 30 years and beyond.

Keep your eye on the red and the blue

Regards John Ottaway”

RND 15: Win Secures Minor Premiership for

 LEAGUE Falcons 21.6 def Sharks 7.10.

 

The League rested players Layton Cooper, Dayne Corps, Gavin Jacks, Bryce Acreman &
Cody Hancock but we still fielded a strong side and were dominate in the first quarter
with a 7 straight goal display. Ash Milligan was hard at the ball from go to woa and made
a spectacular leap for a mark on the western wing in the first. [surprised he didn’t give
away a free as he didn’t managed to come down with the ball] We suffered a major
setback with Brenton Smythe breaking his collarbone badly in the first and will lose
Brenno for the rest of the season. 

Quarter time saw the score Falcons 7.0 to Sharks 1.3. The second quarter was a more
even affair with the Sharks manning up and making the Falcons boys accountable in
each and every contest . Ash Milligan combined with Mick F-Z and Vic Bellotti to feed
the ball into our forward line which saw Dan Fuller kick his 4th before halftime. We
even saw centre half back Cameron Ling kick his first goal for the season after a run
along the western wing. Half time scores were Falcons 12.2 to Sharks 5.4. 

The second half saw Falcons lift the tempo with our centre line working well, the ruck
feeding the ball into the forwards resulting in Mick F-Z, Crudda, Sully and Rooney all
kicking goals. Our defence was excellent and impenetrable keeping Sharks to one point
kicked at the 24 minute mark. Third quarter time saw the score at Falcons 16.4 to Shark
s 5.5. With a 10 goal lead going into the last quarter, Falcons kept up the work rate and
finished the game strongly to run out winners Falcons 21.6 to Sharks 7.10.

Great game to Dan Fuller who marked the slippery ball consistently and ended up with a
6 goal haul, Sully kicked 3 and handed of at least another 3, 2 each to Macca, Mick and
Cam Nowotny. Ash Gill made a solid return to the league side along with MJ returning
from a broken bone in his foot.

RESERVES: Falcons 11.5 to Sharks 6.6.

This was a top of the ladder clash with Falcons needing to win to secure second spot so
we could have the double final at home. Dampier had not played a game for the past 5
weeks due to two forfeits and 2 byes so went into the game lacking match practice.
The first quarter was an even affair with the ball going between backlines for  most of
the quarter and resulting in Falcons forward Brett Cappa kicking our only 2 goals.
Quarter time score was Falcons 2.2 to Sharks 0.2. The second quarter saw Sharks start
to exert some pressure across the ground and kept us goalless while kicking 3 to go in
at halftime with a 6 point lead. Falcons 2.3 to Sharks 3.3. The third quarter saw the
Falcons boys dominate with a 6 goal quarter to go to three quarter time Falcons 8.5 to
Sharks 4.3.
The last quarter was hard fought with our defence getting more work in this quarter
than for the whole game. Fantastic mark to AJ in the last quarter in front of the benches
and the final score was Falcons 11.5 to Sharks 6.6. This win sets up a rematch at home
for the Falcons in two weeks.   

Westy went onto the ball and produced some great work across the centre, and with
Brett Cappa [4 goals] and Adrian Third [3 goals] proving too big and strong in our
forward line we were convincing winners on .
