The Roos switched to the double blue guernseys
in 1982, starting with a fresh slate in an attempt to
break a long-running premiership drought.
The switch worked eventually, with the Roos
winning six flags in seven years.
Unfortunately the club has lost a couple legends
in recent times, including club great Alby Yeo, and
Mr Hill is asking any former players to come along
and enjoy the day.
“It’s nearly impossible for us to send out invites
so we are hoping our members’ mail out, advertis-
ing and social media have given it enough exposure
for people to know about it,” he said.
“SANFL great Neil Kerley will be in attendance
and the club will auction off the retro guernseys at a
club function after the game.
“It will be a pretty laid back day we will enjoy
the footy, auction and then in the evening hear from
Neil, Hallett and hear from a couple of club legends
to finish up the evening.”
The Roos take on Loxton tomorrow and a win
will not only keep their top two hopes alive but
could also see them belt out a version of the old
Pelicans club song.
Oldest living player to toss coin
The oldest living footballer to represent
Barmera, Roy Nagel, 99, will toss the coin
for tomorrow’s ‘back to Barmera’ game at the
Mr Nagel, who still lives in the town with his
wife, Gwen, played seven consecutive seasons for
Barmera during the 1930s, missing just one game
(with an injured foot) during that time.
He was a member of the club’s 1937 premiership
side after playing in a string of losing grand finals.
The ruckman’s outstanding career was cut short due
to the outbreak of World War II, in which he served.
Mrs Nagel said her husband was “looking for-
ward” to his duties tomorrow.

The Roos’ big win over
Berri last week, coupled
with a victory over bottom
side Loxton could see the
Roos move into second spot.
Wearing their red and
yellow heritage guernseys,
Barmera-Monash can hit the
final three rounds full of run-

Former Loxton and
Renmark footballer Tony
Modra was inducted into
the South Australian
National Football League
hall of fame on Tuesday
The high-flying Modra
joined fellow former
Riverland players Russell
Ebert, Don Lindner, Neil
Kerley, Harold Oliver,
Grantley Fielke, Mark
Mickan and Mark Ricciuto as
hall of fame members.
Modra played his jun-
ior football at Loxton before
being coaxed across to
Renmark, playing a part in
the Rovers’ 1990 premiership
alongside brothers Rick and

in 1991 and booted 129 goals
(including finals) in 1993,
yet still finished third behind
Gary Ablett and Hawthorn’s
Jason Dunstall in the Coleman
Modra eventually won
the Coleman in 1997 with 81
goals, but was injured in the
preliminary final win over
the Western Bulldogs and
missed the Crows’ premier-
ship over St Kilda. He failed
to be selected for the 1998
grand final and was traded to
Fremantle at the season’s end.
He finished his career with
588 goals from 165 games.
Member for Chaffey Tim

local football and at the high-

Berri’s fight for survival in the 2014 A1
netball season comes down to tonight’s clash
A win to Waikerie will leave Berri two games
outside the top four and with matches against
Loxton and Loxton North to come, it would be an
outside chance of playing finals at best.
Berri assistant coach Tori Brown said her team is
up for the challenge.
“The girls certainly want to play finals so they
will be giving it their all against Waikerie,” she said.
“(We need) accurate shooting and to make use of
Unfortunately, Berri will be without its goal-

“It’s a bit disappointing, but can’t be helped,”
Brown said. “Experienced shooter Rachel Gates
will be stepping up from A3s.”
Renmark will face Loxton North without Amy
Martinson tomorrow, with the star shooter injuring
her ankle during the week, while top team Loxton
will be hoping to burst Barmera’s bubble after its
first win last week.
Meanwhile, former Barmera goal attack Chloe
Drogemuller captained Premier League team
Garville to victory in last Friday’s semi-final.
Garville defeated Phoenix 52-44, with
Drogemuller leading from the front.
She netted 11 of her team’s 17 goals in a pivotal
Garville will now play reigning premier Contax
in tonight’s preliminary final for a shot at Matrics in
the grand final.
