Marcus Wong - Senior Womens coach at sturt

Don't know leigh marsden, but there is a Leith Marsden who's playing social ball at Wayville

As for the Bald Eagle Bombers i think one of the members has been busy painting the world blue.

Painting the world blue? Too cryptic for me mate.

Yeah, Leith or Leigh Marsden, wasn't he a junior super star? Akin to Jacob Holmes?

Aaron Bishop - the tall red-headed guy? Would be about mid 20s? If so, played SANFL for Sturt and is currently working in Melbourne as a plumber. If not, no idea!

Leith was a gun, but no Jacob Holmes. Casey Isaacs works as a lawyer at Caldicott and Co, Jared Wilson lives in Sydney. Neither playing ball anymore

Okay, that's the Sturt connection coming through with the goods.

Yeah, Bish was a tall red-head.

Okay, so Leith was no Jacob, but surely a decent ABL potential?

Casey was a handy guard and good guy. I believe Jared's Dad has NBA dreams for his son?

Ha, well, just thought I'd throw Julian in there!

Justin Sweet has so much natural talent.

Hannah incredibly tough junior, riddled with injuries throughout though.

That's right, Mark, Glen and James Carey came back and played for Centrals? Charlie Geddes?

I assumed most weren't playing, but want to know what they're doing.

Hi! Just thought I´d answer to the "what about the Bain family" question! Jean and Barry are still living in Adelaide, but no longer involved in any sports. Jean is teaching at a school for handicapped children, Barry is a courier driver and should be retiring in December this year (2007). Andrew is the Principal Horn of the Queensland Orchestra in Brisbane, as well as a Horn Lecturer at the Sydney Conservatorium for Music. Steven is manager of a sports and recreation centre in Adelaide. Julian is a freelance musician and music teacher in Melbourne, and me (Mark), I am currently living and working as a freelance musician and teacher in Germany. Steven still plays basketball socially, Julian is now into road cycling, but the rest of us haven´t been so involved in sport for a while.
