Back in Time – Part 2: More of the Bombers in the `80s

Some more great memories for Bomber fans from Pamela Sherpa as she delves deeper into her old Essendon footy scrapbook to come up with more fabulous clippings of the Bombers from the `80s.



“ They don’t make them like they used to” is all I can say. !!
Cheers and happy reminiscing from Pamela.

High marking. Those were the days!







Swervin’ Mervin was one of Pamela’s favourites.

    Thanks for the memories Pamela, some fab times in the 80s for the Bombers. My favourite player from that era was Leon Baker.

    I actually met Leon Baker. He came to a BBQ in my backyard. His sister lived next door to me.. Even though I knew her surname was Baker I didn’t join the dots until Leon came to visit!!!!
