Peter Roozendaal was a giant ruckman from Scottsdale who first came under notice as a member of the Tasmanian Schoolboys champion team of 1977. Roozendaal went on to play senior football with Scottsdale in the NTFA/NTFL, on King Island and then in the North-East competition. His long playing career ended with a short stint at North Launceston when well into his forties, alongside his son. His final game was a reserves premiership in the NTFL. Roozendaal enjoyed two highly successful seasons on King Island with Currie, winning association and club Best and Fairest awards and helping the Robins win titles in 1986 and 1988. He was a dominant force in Scottsdale’s great teams of the 1980s when Tasmanian football was in transition to the first State League and the Magpies were considered by many to be the equal of any club in Tasmania.
