John from Belmont says: Gidday mate, I use to play juniors for Lakes United in the early 70's & have some great memories as a young bloke watching some great games at Cahill Oval with my mates especially against "The Maggots" where it would be a full house supporting the local team.I was at the 1974/75 grand final at the #1 Sports ground at the age of 12 & 13 and remember the Macquarie Timber Truck on the field,people on the back singing the Lakes song & pulling up right in front of the West's supporters singing our song giving it to them.(Have photos of this & other photos of them great days when then as kids you could run on the field at the end of the game)."The Grand Finals". I remember yourself playing outside Ronnie Burgess that day & getting into the clear a few times & yelling out " GO BOOTHIE " & having a great combination with him.Other players I remember John Fischer,Glen Golden,Thommo,Huggins, Greg Thomson(I think)Gardiner,Tommy Shepherd,Mick Pittman,Johnny Brock,Tony Shiels (old Tony wasn't to bad at the field goals either ). What a great pack of forwards & a great set of backs !! The good ole days.( I still have B&W portrait photos of some of you guys that I purchased for I think 20c each at the ground that glorious day.( They didn't think much of your retirement in them days selling the photos for 2 bob each!!!! Ha Ha !!!I hope you read this & remember them wonderful days as a young 18-19 year old as I do as a then 14-15 year old.All the best mate.Up Lakes !!!! P.S. Still remember the words for the team song word for word after nearly 40 years !!!.because thats our ""Battlecry".
