VALE KANGA

I turned up to the legendary Glenferrie Oval in 1990. Geoff Lord sent me a letter. I had long hair and a baseball cap. Yabby was crook. Interim Coach, Allan Joyce, met me and dressed me down.


AJ: What are you doing here?


JG: I‘m here to train.


AJ: Well, get changed for training.


JG: What time is that?


AJ: 4.30


JG: What time is it now?


(At that point AJ looked at his watch and pointed to the master clock.)


AJ: Get changed. Get your cap off and cut your hair.


JG: John Platten has long hair?


AJ: And he’s a Brownlow medalist.


Hawthorn Football Club was built on strict values, decency and tough stuff. All thanks to one man.
