Dean Towers and Matt Zurbo reprised on a typical Otway wintry day

Yesterday, Russell the electrician was doing a job for me at home when the conversation turned to football, The Footy Almanac, Dean Towers, Russell’s son Chris, and the “Old Dog”.


Russell’s son played footy with Dean at Otway Districts and both were coached by Matt Zurbo.


Old Dog wrote a wonderful story of that time, so on a wet, cold and miserable Friday I’ve decided to add some  sunshine to the day and reprise Matt’s story for all to enjoy once again.
