Malone back at Albert Park
IT has been 25 years since Frank Malone held up the Gympie Premiership trophy at Albert Park as a member of the Rainbows rugby league side.
Today Malone returns to Albert Park to watch his Cowboy’s contracted son Donald play in the City Country match.
Malone said he had a lot of great memories from his time playing league at Albert Park.
The ex-footballer is now a teacher’s aide at Cherbourg State Schools and remembers coming to Gympie every weekend with his indigenous brothers to play league.
Although they all didn’t play in the same team they cheered each other on.
“We came as one and left as one,” Malone said.
“It was a great time.”
Malone played five-eighth for Rainbows along side Laurie Mi Mi, the Connell and Tierney brothers.
“We had a great team, hopefully I will catch up with some of them on the day,” he said.
