Echuca footballer Matthew Farrelly joined his Bendigo Gold teammates in the club's final VFL match.August 26, 2014 3:21pm
Bendigo Gold had an emotional farewell on Friday evening when the club played its final VFL game against Collingwood.
Echuca footballer Matthew Farrelly, who has played with Bendigo for the past two years, was devestated when it was announced the club would fold.
However, the 21-year-old said he just wanted to ‘‘soak up every moment’’ of Friday’s clash.
‘‘It was upsetting and a little disappointing,’’ he said.
‘‘We treated it like a normal game, but you know, once that final siren sounded it really kicked in.’’
The lack of support from surrounding clubs ultimately led to the Gold’s demise and premature rapture.
However, the crowd attendance reached an unexpected sum on Friday evening as the locals journeyed to Queen Elizabeth Oval to witness Gold’s final hit-out.
‘‘The atmosphere was great and the crowd really got behind us,’’ Farrelly said.
