I'm sorry mate I don't have the keys. I have had dealings with the Sims family for a number of years, they are wonderful people and their products are outstanding.
They are so well known for their Fruchocs, however they
produce many other products including Honeycombe.

I live 10 minutes from the Glynburn Road Factory and retail outlet and I visit there frequently.

Dear Sims family
I am addicted to Fruchocs
Best chocolates Ive ever tasted

The retail shop is at the back of the factory near the car park. They do Crown Mints as you say and much much more.

Naturally I know it.

Will wait for a while to see if anyone else does.

Will have to pick a West team just showing nicknames soon.

Other clubs can do the same.

John Scneebichler would be my pick from those.

Can't recall too many North Players in 36, Only one that springs to mind from the early '80s was David Owens. Was a favourite player of mine at the time, however looking at the NAFC player database he only played 33 games in 4 years.

His nickname was 'Single'.

Mick Rennie was 36 for West. Very talented half-back with a beautiful kick, played in the mid 80s.

North's most famous number 35 would have to be Peter Bennett. Held down CHF for a number of years playing 293 games from 1983 - 1995 for 2 premierships.

Are you thinking of Paul Rennie blacky? Paul played full back, I don't think Mick ever did.

Yes remember Peter Bennett #35.
That's a pretty good career when you stack it up.

Jameson probably didn't play enough games for Glenelg (63), given his Crows career.

Onto #34. Any takers?

In my opinion the best 35 that has played for Norwood was Rodney Pope

Nathan Steinberner from Central carved out a pretty impressive career in 34, albeit injury interrupted.

Played 141 League games and would have got to the 200 mark if not for 3 or 4 shoulder reconstructions.

'Lager' was a member in 5 x Senior Premierships and awarded Playing Life Membership of CDFC back in 2006.

The former Port Power listed player also won the 2004 Jack Oatey Medal and Captained the club in 2006, as well.
