Dermott Brereton Inspirational 1989 Grand Final Photo

Our Price: $385.00


Product Description:
On a beautiful spring day Geelong and Hawthorn turned on a goal kicking spectacular which was littered with highlights and controversy. From the opening bounce this game was buzzing. Hawthorn s centre half forward Dermott Brereton was crushed by Geelong s Mark Yeates and was left holding his ribs and in obvious distress. Brereton was recovering in a forward pocket, marked in a pack and goaled, The Hawks began to lift. " Inspirational" was the simple message Allan Jeans sent to Brereton via the runner and by the end of the first term the Hawks led by over six goals. Geelong settled down and while there were spot fires all over the ground, that margin held until the final change. That s when the majesty of this contest reached its peak. Geelong kept coming with Gary Ablett rewriting the record book at full forward, while Hawthorn kept counter punching. But the physical examination Geelong had put Hawthorn through began to take its toll and the reigning Premiers began to stall. The Cats were charging. In the final few minutes this game was up for grabs, and it was then that we saw the true strength of this magnificent Hawks outfit. It held firm despite injury and fatigue to win a contest played at breakneck speed all day.
This memorabilia piece depicts Dermott Brereton going through severe pain in the trainer s arms during the first quarter of playing. The photo has been framed with a plaque of the match description and statistics. This is one for all footy fans.
