Team of the Century

This team was announced at the club's 80th anniversary celebration held at the Bentleigh Club on Sunday 10 February 2002. The selection committee was chaired by Phil Hutton and consisted of Alan Irwin, Len Johnson, Lorraine Morgan AM and Dot Neal. The selection task proved a great challenge with the selectors comparing performances set generations apart, under vastly different conditions and using different hurdles heights and implements.
