    The Kekovich family lived at my home town of Gunbower before they moved to Myrtleford. See page 40 of Footy Town. I remember dad coming home from training with steam coming out of his ears. The Kekovich family had moved to town. ” They won’t train properly or do what they’re told. but, crikey, can they play football!”
