Four great West's men from the past were presented with special Pratten Park Magpies blazers for their services to West's and the Pratten Park Magpies.
All four are West's men through and through. These 4 men have given great service to West's both on and off the field.
Don Graham played for West's in the 1950's. He was also was the first director to be voted on to the committee of the Leagues Club in 1955.
Bill Keato played for West's between 1938 and 1950, he played 124 first grade games and scored 772 points along the way.Bill was also treasurer from 1951 until 1974.
Ron Watson played at West's from 1950 until 1956. He was a tough forward who played in West's last premiership winning team in 1952. Ron coached West's in 1970 the year after Noel Kelly left West's .
Noel Kelly what can I say. My pick for the greatest player to pull on the Black and White jumper. Noel played 114 games between 1961 and 1969 and scored 6 tries not bad for a frontrower. He was the first hooker / prop forward to make 3 Kangaroo Tours. Noel of course coached West's between 1966 and 1969.
