In this edition, Southern Suns’ Men’s 50’s player Michael McCall, who represented New South Wales in 1980, tells us about his memories. McCall, and three other players – the ACT’s Men’s 50’s Otto Karki, Gerry Brine and Garry Potter – took to the fields at Stockland Park on Wednesday morning, just two hours away from where it all began in 1980, to play in the National Touch League. McCall fondly remembers the first National Championships, held in Southport, Queensland, in December 1980. “It was a long time ago but it was all very new and no one was really sure (what was going to happen to the sport), and we we’re all ex league players. Touch was a new sport that had evolved out of a training run with League but it was a great experience, like Touch is,” McCall said. “I’ve got friends now that I played against in 1980 that I’m still friends with now so that’s the good part. The game’s evolved, it’s definitely got a lot quicker,” he said.“It was different, because no one knew what to expect or how long it was going to last. That was the hardest part, like you represented your region or represented your state and you’d get excited but you really didn’t know where you were going to end up.”From there, McCall continued to play Nationals and hasn’t really looked back. “I just kept playing, I gave it away for a couple of years with other commitments like League where I had contracts where I couldn’t play but after that I was itching to get back and in 1985 I think (I came back) and kept going. I just loved the game, I thoroughly enjoyed it. This level is just that step up and you enjoy every game,” Mc Call said. Since the National Touch League started in 1997, McCall has only missed one tournament, and doesn’t look like slowing down anytime soon. The chance to catch up with all the friends he’s made in Touch, as well as be able to compete in a competition at his age and his love for the sport, keeps McCall coming back year after year. “It’s a great sport and people ask me ‘why are you still doing it at our age because of all the injuries’ but I do it because I can. While I still enjoy it and can do it, I keep playing. There’s no look of retirement yet.”“The friendships in Touch, they are friendships for life. You might only see a friend once a year at NTL but the catch up is great…and talking about how good you were and how bad they were and so on, it’s the friendships you make and the teams you play with.”The National Touch League has become family affair for the McCall’s, with two of Michael’s daughters, Melissa and Jess, playing in the Women’s Open division. Jess recently returned from the successful Trans Tasman Series in New Zealand, where she was part of the Women’s Open side that beat the Kiwi’s 3-0. “I’m so proud of them, the three of them. I’m lucky enough to have them all represent their state and Australia. They take after their mother thank god. My wife captained the New South Wales Women’s Open side back in the 1970’s,” McCall said. “I’m so proud of them, our youngest has just represented Australia …and I was just blown away it was great.”While McCall is humbled at the fact that he is one of only four players to compete at the first and the most recent Nationals as a player, it’s something he had never really thought about. “I never realised to tell you the truth, I’m humbled that I’ve been lucky enough to play and have longevity. It’s a bit of a feather on the cap, but the teams you play with, that’s more important than your personal stuff. It’s good to get a medal or something but when you do it with a bunch of 14 old blokes that’s good because that’s the beauty of it.” While it is most probably not as easy to back up game after game by the time a player reaches the Men’s 50’s division as it was earlier in their careers, McCall doesn’t look like stopping just yet. “At this level, it’s a different calibre of player naturally, we all just try our best at our age, we’re all over 50 and we just try our best and while we are trying it is good enough. If not, we just all go back and have a laugh and a beer, and don’t take ourselves too seriously. Winning is a bonus,” McCall said. Stayed tuned to the Touch Football Australia and National Touch League websites to read about the ACT Men’s 50’s trio, who all played together in the ACT Men’s Open side in 1980, and who are still playing in the one team this week.
Chelsea hat-trick hero Abraham: We can do betterby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea striker Tammy Abraham says there’s more to come from him after his hat-trick at Wolves.He admitted afterwards that there was still plenty for the team to work on, although winning while learning and adapting was the most important thing.”It’s been an amazing day,” reflected Abraham to chelseafc.com. “Coming to a place like Wolves is never easy so the manner of the victory is something we can be very pleased with. We played well, scored goals and got three points to take home with us so it’s been a great day.”Obviously we did concede two goals and that is something we’re disappointed about because a clean sheet would have been fantastic but we will take the positives out of this performance and take it into the next game.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
