    Happy Birthday Bobby!

    Wishing the great Bobby Skilton a Happy 80th Birthday!

    So many memories. Such a contributor as a player and off the field. The man who is the glue that binds many eras of players and supporters. Bobby is!the Swans.

    Thank you Mr Skilton! May your birthday be wonderful celebrations & another of many more to come!

    A great Swans man, always good to see him in the rooms after a win and in the stands with his grand daughter I think it is.

    Beautifully put!

    I feel privileged to be old enough to have seen Bobby play. A champion on and off the field. Every club has a player who symbolises it - Ted Whitten at Footscray, Jack Dyer at Richmond. Bobby Skilton is ours.

    Happy 80th birthday Bobby!

    I love Bobby Skilton. He has always been my Swans hero from my childhood and I saw him play a number of times. Played all my junior footy in number 13 because at my first club 14 was already taken. Great to see the legend reach the 'Big 8 - 0'. Hope you had a great day Bobby!!

    Happy birthday to the best player on both sides of his body, both by foot and hand, in the history of the game.
