Stories were told, memories recollected and a good time was had by more than 100 people who attended the Echuca Football League reunion on Saturday.
Held at the Moama Sporties Club, all clubs were represented to some extent at the event, which also boasted a solid display of memorabilia for the league which ran from 1952 to 1989.
‘‘Everybody said they had a good time, that it was a good thing for them and they enjoyed it,’’ organiser Don Hicks said.
‘‘We got a good match of football to watch, where Moama upset the Eagles and the whole thing went off all right.’’
Hicks thought it would not be 25 years before another reunion was held and the next one would likely include the netballers.
‘‘Hopefully the netballers can get a bit more involved and we get a few more numbers there,’’ he said.
