Jock McHale, above, famous ex-Collingwood football coach, gets a rousing send on from some of 200 men who worked under him as he retired yesterday from his post as foreman at the Carlton and united Brewery.
His workmates presented him with the grandfather clock and Jim Kee (right) gave him the beer mug-decorated with Collingwood colors that he used at the brewery.
After 52 years there Jock had reached the retiring age of 70, but said he could work for many more years yet.
