As remembered by Cyril Minge
reformed in 1947 playing in what was the Lower North Ass with teams from
1960 - 1969
Lyndoch started up again this time playing in the Gawler and District Football Ass.
Brian, Buck, Harris coached in 1963. I joined Lyndoch as did a lot of players
from Williamstown colts. In 1963 - 65 I was honoured to be appointed as Vice
Captain. In 1964 with 7 Colts from Williamstown the U17 won the Premiership
with Brian (Buck) Harris coach. The A Grade won a premiership with Kevin
Ablay as coach. In late 1968 the Gawler and District Football Association
started up as Primary Schools and Mini-league competition with teams from Evanston
Green, Evanston Gold, Gawler Primary, Gawler East,
1970 - 1979
Lyndoch were runners up in 1970 and premiers in 1971. Ivan Dicker was coach in 1970 and Cyril Minge in 1971. In 1972 Lyndoch A Grade were runners up with Frank Howard Captain Coach. In 1974 Lyndoch B Grade were runners up. Lyndoch had many good years but could not gain many premierships.
Coaches I can remember from 1960 - 79 include Brian ( Buck) Harris, Kevin Alby, Frank Howard, Graham Thomas, Lyndsay McGee, Sam Meniel, Lyndsay Turner, Geof Gerlach and Alf Skase. I had many great years at Lyndoch playing with some great players until 1979 when I retired at age 42. In 1979 Lyndoch and Williamstown had a meeting together with 83 players and supporters present and formed the Barossa District Football Club.
