Bill Magin

Bill_MaginOriginally from Seaford in Victoria, he is a 650-game icon of Sunshine Coast football with 26 years as a player/coach/administrator of the Pomona club. His Pomona commitment was interrupted by stints at Centrals Aloomba in Cairns and time in Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory. Boasts an extraordinary list of highlights that include 12 club B&F’s, three League B&F’s – two on the Sunshine Coast and one in Cairns – and 10 League leading goal-kicker awards, plus four 100-goal seasons.

Representing South Queensland, North Queensland and the Sunshine Coast, he won an incredible nine country carnival B&F’s. He had the privilege of playing in every country centre in Queensland that plays the Australian game and toured New Guinea with the Cairns League in 1981. His slight and wiry frame belied his undeniable talent. He had a prodigious leap and uncanny goal sense. Has continued to play in Masters competitions where the awards, accolades, goals and good times have continued.

Still contributes through countless hours of junior coaching and was extremely proud when son Rhys was elevated off his beloved Essendon Bombers Rookie list to debut in the AFL competition in 2008.
