Robbie Mackinlay Keeps Pumping Them Out

The Old Daysdale Football Club Ground

We are featuring another of Albury based, Robbie Mackinlay’s podcasts, part of his GLORY DAYS parcel of footy stories ;  this time on the 1994 premiership win of the Daysdale Football Club, its a beauty!

Daysdale is a small rural town with a population of about 190 and located 45km north of Corowa and approximately 618km south-west of Sydney.  It is about in the middle of the Riverina District and in 1994 was playing in the Coreen and District Football League.

That year the league comprised ten clubs: Coleambly, Coreen, Daysdale, Hopefield-Buraja, Jerilderi, Oaklands, Rand, Rennie, Urana and Victorian club Wagunyah.  It was also in that year that the Daysdale Club celebrated their 100th year anniversary and officials were determined to win the flag.

You can listen to the podcast on the above icon.

Football, like life is a struggle in these small rural towns and 1994 was the last year the club had a stand alone identity.  The following year it merged with Coreen, to become Coreen-Daysdale FC then in 2006 they merged with the Hopefield-Buraja Club to become the Coreen-Daysdale-Hopefield-Buraja United Football Club.  Along with that goes the claim of the club with the longest name in NSW.

The Coreen League folded in 2008 and the CDHBU Club moved over to the Hume Football League.

 

Robbie Mackinlay’s Podcasts

The Football History Society is branching out to include a renewed feature on our website.

While we do include a page of podcasts, accessible on the front page of our website under ‘Whats New’ we thought we would go one step further.

In collaboration with Albury based, Robbie Mackinlay, a member of the Football History Society, we will endeavour to regularly post one of his football related podcasts from Robbie’s site: Glory Days, Your Sport & Media, which feature football clubs and personalities in the game throughout NSW.

Glory Days is a look back in time at some of the most incredible sporting moments and achievements from right across regional Australia. Robbie Mackinlay host of Your Sport and Media, dives deep into the untold stories of some of sports great moments.

We have spoken to Robbie about moving further afield to embrace the whole of NSW football with his podcasts as opposed to the localised area of the Southern Riverina.  Robbie is also keen to expand his craft by undertaking family interviews which could remain as a keepsake vestige with relatives of the interviewee.

You can listen to the first podcast in this series showcasing the Holbrook Football Club’s 1970 Farrer FL Premiership win – A last minute resignation of high-profile coach left the Holbrook club in limbo – they went to a local replacement and fortunately got the right man and the rest is history. These stories are great company if you are driving and have a real interest in footy.
