In a huge milestone, old scholar Luke ‘Gobble’ Golding (1997) played game number 300 for the DOSA Football Club at the TCA on Saturday, in an important win over Hutchins for the reserves side.
Luke has been the face of DOSA for many years and continues to make it all happen both on field and behind the scenes. A young bushy haired ruckman started in 2002 and his leadership was instantly noticed with Luke picked as Captain in 2003, as well as being Reserves Captain from 2010 to 2013.
Twice he was Premiership Captain (2003 and 2012) and played in another flag in 2014. An outstanding tap ruckman, his consistency and durability has been exceptional during his journey.
Luke joined the DOSA board in 2005 and has been part of that group since, being Vice President for 5 years as well as many years as Club President, which included the DOSA Double last year. He was awarded DOSA Life Membership in 2012 and became an OSFA Life Member in 2016
Luke has been awarded DOSA Clubman of the Year an unprecedented five times and his extensive work behind the scenes has built the club into a strong position.
Congratulations Luke! You can see more photos from the game on our gallery: DOSA V Hutchins reserves.
