IMAGES OF YALLOURN - Stan Brown & Doug Brown - Yallourn Football Club & Yallourn Tennis Club


The first photograph (taken in 1969) shows a former popular sporting identity of Yallourn, Stan Brown with his son, Doug. Stan Brown was a star for Yallourn Football Club and played in the club’s last premiership in 1948. That season, Stan won the Kevin Comber award for the Most Improved Player.

Stan won a string of awards at YFC including the Most Consistent Player trophy in 1954 which was the inaugural (and momentous) season of the Latrobe Valley Football League.

The group photo, which accompanies this article, shows Stan in the 1955 Grand Final team (next to the then coach of Yallourn, Gerald Marchesi). Although Carlton FC took an interest in recruiting Stan to play VFL, he ‘stayed and played on’ with Yallourn FC and amassed a total of 167 senior games with the Blues.

Stan also gained a handsome reputation as a tennis player and represented Yallourn at the Country Week Championships on more than twenty occasions.

Rohan - I recently spoke to J Sheekey about some memorabilia that you had agreed to collect from me please


Hi Rohan
I was wondering if you could scan the photo of Dad Brewer to this site. I would like to a copy of it on behalf of his relatives I am a great-grandson of his. I will also look into possible photos etc that may be held by some of his relatives and pass them onto you if I can. This may take a while.
Geoff Puckridge


Hi Rohan...welcome. The photos sound good and we'd be pleased to have them. LH side panel, click on "Photo", browse and upload - it's pretty straight-forward from there. If you have dates and names, add them as well. Let me know if you have any problems...Julie
