Since its inception Modbury has fielded a side in the SALBL Taylor Cup winning the Gold competition on two occasions. Although relegated to Division One Pennants this season the club chose to retain its side in the Gold section of the Taylor Cup.
With the opening round of matches played at West Lakes on Sunday evening 27th October Modbury drew the home and the preeminent side of Premier League Pennants for the past three years.
Stacked with Premier league and SA stars West Lakes was expected to be much too good for the “Old Boys” Modbury side. However, the “Old Boys” would have none of it and climbed the “mountain” to inflict a first-round defeat on the favourites. This has proved “the old bones” are still ticking along nicely and should not be taken lightly. Well done “Thunder”.
