Egg-citing clash of Hawks and Demons

EASTER eggs and football will be on the menu at Prospect Park tomorrow as the Hawks and Demons clash in their third annual Good Friday NTFA division 2 fixture.

The two teams will meet in a stand-alone game which usually attracts a good crowd.

The Prospect Hawks will have bar and canteen facilities open and will provide Easter eggs and Hawthorn giveaways for children attending with their parents.

There will be face painting and Hawthorn mascot Hawka is expected to make an appearance.

The match has an added attraction of two former State Wide League footballers lining up.

Former North Launceston veteran Andrew McLean, a member of the club's 1995 premiership team, is now playing for Lilydale, and former Launceston 2011 State League premiership player Michael Sinclair will be lining up for the Hawks.

The 40-year-old McLean has been playing football without a break since starting in the under- 10s.

He missed the past two games with school rowing coaching commitments but comes back into the Demons side and is showing no signs of letting up.

"It is good for the body to have a rest but I will try to wing a few more games together before I need another one," McLean said.

"I've been playing for over 30 years and I'm still loving it and getting out there with my teammates and enjoying the team stuff you get out of football."
