Tony ‘Chang’ Young is seen as the epitome of the North Launceston spirit. A tough no-nonsense footballer both on and off the ground, he has served the Robins/Bombers for more than 50 years as player, coach and selector. Young has been a guiding father figure for not only his own four sons who all played seniors with the Robins, but for the many players who have played for North Launceston over the past 50 years. Young is now enjoying the achievements of his grandchildren as they make their way into the North Launceston junior, youth and senior teams.
