The Caulfield Grammarians Football Club is saddened by the news of the passing of 1949 Premiership player Peter Yeomans.
Peter played 2 years of U/19’s before enlisting in the RAAF. After the war he re-joined the club and was our #16 in the 1949 Premiership side. He was unfortunately not well enough to attend the 70 year reunion of this drought breaking premiership in 2019.
He played 42 games from 1941-1950. Peter’s sons Geoff and Andy also played in the Blue and White.
Husband of Laurel (dec’d) and much loved Dad of Di, Andy and Geoff and Father In Law of Geoff and Ali and loved Pa of Ollie and Gemma.
He made 95 and 10 months, a good innings and a good life. We will miss him!
Peter is the first player on the second row of the 1949 Premiership Photo
