It is with sadness the Mount Barker Football Club says farewell to former Barkeroo Dennis “Acko” Atkinson. Dennis passed away earlier this week after a long battle with illness. “Acko” was a member of the Roos 1982 Premiership team and was “clearly” adjudged as best on ground (B.O.G.) in that final played at Lobethal Oval against Onkas. “Acko” also played in the 1983 Reserve Grade Grand Final for the Barkeroos and again B.O.G. Our thoughts go out to Dennis’s Family & Friends.
