Skando backs up

Post by cunno » Sat 09 Apr, 2011 8:05 pm

As an aside to the victory last night over the Rabbits, I noticed John Skandalis was one of the first grade trainers. He was a trainer for the U20's (which he has been doing for a while now) then backed up for the first grade (haven't seen that before). Great to see a club legend still involved and he is taking it serious, I saw him giving Benji some serious instructions at one stage.

Well done to skando good to see his continued involvement which no doubt adds to the spirit in the club.

Skando was one of my favourites of all time . Great player and great person as has been seen what he does off the field as well . Lets hope we don't need to reactivate him again this year . (Not that I think he would let us down if he did)

The fact he has come out of retirement twice to help us out when we were short on troops shows his commitment to the club.

The guy is a legend.

Agree with all of the above. Skando is one of a kind, and thank goodness he's ours!
