Hi All, Thank you all for the kind words and especially to Cowcorner! It was an honour and a priviledge to play the game in which I could feel the emotion from the crowd. I've played State League grand finals with smaller crowds and with a crowd so vocally cheering for me made it even more special!
My only regret is that goals 3 & 4 are unfortunately one off's as my body, though walking, cannot be put through rigours like a bike ride or a hockey game on a regular basis.
Goal No.5 the mini Tri-Athlon is something I am excited about and hope to achieve this in November next year, I have a lot of preparation to do before I can achieve the Tri.
Again, thanks for the kind words everyone and Cowcorner I hope you tap me on the shoulder and say g'day if we happen across each other again at a Hockey game.
All the best - Harry Zachariou
