Mustangs tackle club reunion
THE Murwillumbah Mustangs rugby league club has quite a history behind it, and its members will have a lot of stories to tell when they reunite next month.
The club, which formed back in 1989 with the merger of Old Boys and Brothers, is planning a reunion for all past and present players, coaches and supporters on the weekend of November 20-22, with the main function on Saturday, November 21 at the Catholic Hall in Murwillumbah.
The Mustangs first took to the field as a club in 1990, playing in the Gold Coast Group 18.
The Mustangs won the under-19 grand final in 1993, but had to wait until 2003 for their first A-grade premiership, downing Tugun in a tense match.
According to organiser Glenn Weaver, the weekend will be a great chance for people who have been, and are associated with the club to catch up, relive some of the “glory days” and reflect on the Mustangs’ proud history.
“The weekend will start with a meet and greet at the Courthouse Hotel on the Friday night, followed by the main function on Saturday, which will also include entertainment by the Innocent Bystanders and then a recovery day on the Sunday at the Courthouse Hotel,” Weaver said.
“I encourage anyone with any old photos, memorabilia, jerseys, clippings or items of interest to get in touch with me, as we would like to have a display set up on the night.”
Tickets for the main function are available from the Courthouse Hotel but are limited.
