THE McKnight family has been honoured for its longstanding contribution to the Stony Creek Football Netball Club.
The club unveiled the McKnight Family Grandstand at the Stony Creek Recreation Reserve during Saturday’s home games against Toora.
Stony Creek president Mark Le Page said the family’s service to the club dates back to 1931.
“Officially there are 1500 games of football and netball played between the family members. Unofficially there are more than 2000 games,” he said.
The McKnight family shares eight club best and fairest awards between them, four McCaughan Medals, two Alberton league best and fairests, and six life memberships in: the late Don Senior, Verna, Don Junior, Cathy, Brett and Doug. Ryan McKnight is eligible for life membership this year.
Don Junior is also an Alberton league life member.
“The family’s been around for nearly 90 years and the best part of that has been a continuous service to the club and the committee across the generations.
“It was our club’s privilege and honour to name the grandstand after them.”
