MDU and Meeniyan shine

WHEN the Meeniyan Dumbalk United Football Netball Club president, Adrian Coulter, arrived at the Meeniyan Recreation Reserve at 7.30am Saturday, there were already 25 cars parked around the oval.
They had in fact been parked overnight to ensure the best positions for the game featuring two of the AFL’s most famous players, Alan Didak and Chris Tarrant.
Many Melbournians attended the event, some of whom mentioned to Coulter how impressed they were with what they saw and would be back.
From the club’s point of view, the day was a resounding success and Adrian Coulter says it was partly a way of giving something back to the local community and thanking it for its continued support.
“The day was a win for everyone. It lifted the profile of the club, the league, the town and even the opposition gained great publicity from the game.”
Coulter also wanted to publicly thank those people who made the day possible and says that while a “win against Korumburra-Bena would have been the icing on the cake, it was a fantastic day all round.”
