During the 1976-77 season the Club organised a Sportsmans Dinner.

This function which was held at Lorn Park Bowling Club was mainly arranged by two loyal Club supporters, Tom Morgan and Ian Haxton.

It aimed to bring together past and present Norths players and “thus cement the bonds of the Old and Esteemed Club”.

Guest speaker at the Dinner was Alan Davidson, President of the NSWCA and former Australian Test all-rounder.

While in Maitland, Davidson gave some coaching tips to some of Norths’ young players.
