THE mud, sweat and grazes of the afternoon’s football and netball had been washed off and the players had glammed up for the rebirth of the Mansfield Football Netball Club Ball.
Players, friends and supporters gathered at the Eagles Nest to let their hair down and celebrate life, even if they could not celebrate victories.
Not the Eagles Reserve grade footballers though, who were celebrating their first win in 31 rounds of football.
Coach Derek Smith and players partied as though there was no tomorrow.
A great night was had by all, including young Phoenix Heinrich aged two months.
“When all your baby sitters are here, what else can you do,” mum Jade said.
