1978 Reserves Premiership Team

The 1978 Season was a great year for the Power House Football Club. The Seniors finished on top of the ladder but lost both finals. The Reserves finished in third place and won all three finals including a great victory on Grand Final day. Coach Harold Rosewarne (who went on to become Senior Coach in 1982) produced a committed side and his well-drilled troops managed to bring home the Flag. Captain Daryl Clarke was inspirational all year and the side was balanced with some hard tough footballers like Bobby Peters, Rob Sarosi and Tony Fitzsimmons and the silky skills of Ollie Wilson, Bruce Ramsay, Paul Shewan and Jamie Harris.
