Your Say

George Franki says: Charlie Gill is not mentioned much now. Years ago, at the SCG Members' Bar I had a few drinks with Ferris Ashton, a team mate of Gill's in the 1952/3 Kangaroos. I recall Ashton saying that Gill was a terrific forward. (28/03/2011)

Ron Weekes says: Charlie Gill was my coach in the Newcastle 2nd division in the early 1960s. Charlie even played a few games with the team.
During that time our team was known as Lambton United.
From memory I think Charlie was about forty three years of age.
Even at that age he was far away the best foreward in the team.
Lambton United players were considered not quite up to reserve grade standard ,and some like myself were shift workers that could not get to training on a regular basis. (27/04/2018)
