Ocean Grove Football Netball Club held its sponsor’s lunch on Saturday.

About 60 sponsors and guests were entertained with speeches from coach Pete Davey, member for Corangamite Libby Coker and former Carlton champion Geoff Southby.

Held at Shell Road Pavilion, guests enjoyed a delicious two-course meal from Driftwood Cafe.

Southby was interviewed by club president Peter Smith and the AFL Hall of Famer didn’t disappoint.

Southby, who played in two premierships for Carlton, recalled the time he sat out nearly half a season because he wanted a clearance to rival club South Melbourne.

The Blues held firm, though, and Southby was back playing for them in the second half of the season.

To cap off a successful, the senior footy team held on to beat Geelong Amateur by a point, although Ammos won the A Grade netball game by two goals.
