LEST WE FORGET

Each year the Avondale Heights Football Club play Aberfeldie Football Club in the traditional Premier Division ANZAC Day match. The ANZAC Day clash between these two Premier Division Clubs commenced in 2012. As much of the interest on the day is around the football clash, there are far bigger things that this day represents.
This clash is a reminder of the sacrifices made by others for our freedom and the significance of freedom is even more evident in our current times. For the Premier Division ANZAC Day clash, the player judged best afield will be awarded the Johnson Parker Medal which is named after war veterans with a link to the local area, who played in the local football competition, who strived to play football at the highest level (VFL at the time) and who paid the ultimate price for their country. Following an exhaustive process which included research and consultation with RSL Victoria, the medal was named the JOHNSON PARKER ANZAC DAY MEDAL, named after Len Johnson and Harold Parker. The JOHNSON PARKER ANZAC DAY MEDAL is awarded to the player in the match who best exemplifies the Anzac Spirit. Skill-Courage-Self-Sacrifice-Teamwork-Fair Play. For details of the Johnson Parker Medal click here
