Glen MaloneyAt the conclusion of the Centenary Dinner the evening was reviewed. It was decided that "Mr West" - Glen Maloney, the person who has had the most influence on the West Rosellas, should be appointed as Team Manager. Glen was the initial Secretary / Manager of West Leagues Club and Secretary of the Football Club from 1953 to 1975. It's fitting that this 1969 photo has the No 1 on it - if anyone deserves to be No 1 at West it is Glen Maloney!!
