In order to bolster all of our teams Lappa got a group of boys together from varying year levels with the mission of bringing in 21 new players for the upcoming year. The aim is to get the club back into A-Grade in the near future and have competitive sides across all grades.

Vale Andy Williams

Vale – Andrew “Andy” Williams.
The OHAFC mourns the passing of club stalwart Andrew Williams who passed away yesterday after a long illness battle.
Andy Will, as he was affectionately known, was the consummate clubman. He played 213 games for the club between 1968 and 1980, winning the club’s Best & Fairest in only his second year. He was a member of the 1969 Senior and 1973 Premiership teams and was made a Life Member in 1980. He played in the midfield early in his career before later moving to the forward line. Andy was a great team player – hard at the ball and always prepared to look after his mates. Renowned for his penetrating drop kicks, he was also a bit superstitious, preferring to be the last player on the ground. He confided in having a great love for the game and OHAFC players that came after him were buoyed by the support he gave over many years. He was a part of a keen and vocal group that appreciated the 120 minutes of play on the field and the off field post-mortem nearly as much. And Andy would invariably be an integral part of that keen discussion. Always with a smile on his face, he could talk about footy forever, and especially the OHAFC which he loved so much. Andy will be sadly missed by everyone associated with the club. Our thoughts are with Andy’s wife Robin and family.
