The Wild Men of Montmorency and other tales by Andrew Brasier recently published by the Montmorency Football Club adds to the community history and more importantly the recreational and sporting history of the local area.The collection of profiles presented relies heavily on the experience and memories of the author’s own association with the Club but this helps to interweave the voices of his contemporary subjects, mainly players but also administrators throughout the book.
The 1970s through to the 2000’s is the main time frame covered. Despite the Club’s history going back to 1924, this is not a typical local history with little reference to the early history – and what there is – is presented at the back of the book. Hall of Famers, including players who rose to the VFL are well represented. Contemporary and some older photographs help illustrate this easy read.
