About 170 people attended the 2018 Mortlock Shield dinner on Saturday night where the newest Mortlock Shield life members Far West’s Milton Chandler and Glen Dunn were presented their memberships.
Nearly 40 people from Far West attended the dinner which saw Paul Warmington induct Mr Chandler and Ron Redford induct Mr Dunn as the newest life members.
A presentation for one of last year’s life members, Mid West’s Andrew Buckham was also held, but Mr Buckham was unfortunately absent from the evening.
There was also a performance from “Suburban Footballer” Tom Siegert who entertained the audience with his comedy routine.
The dinner provides the competing associations a chance to get together and socialise after the first day of competition while celebrating the carnival and football on Eyre Peninsula.
