Over the years Norths Club has beknown as a family Club – some might even say that it was “one big family”!
There have been many instances of sons following in the footsteps of their fathers through the various grades – the Lindsays, Johnstons, Wolstenholmes, Rawlings and Mudds – to name just a few.
There have also been numerous cases of fathers playing in the same team as their sons. Norths’ fifth grade in the 1999-2000 season typified this family connection as the team included four father-son combinations in its ranks as seen in the photo below.
Not only was this a great experience for the fathers and sons to be playing in the same team, but it was also an ideal way for the “older fellows to be teaching the younger guys coming through.
