Best Arvo Tea VTCA

Well not trying to determine a winner but what are some of the top quality teas youve enjoyed over the years?

Yarraville Club is always quality, one of the best

Airport West also have a great selection

Heard great things about Spottys but have never played their....

Heard McKinnon usually have decent spread as well

Your opinions?:)

I'm actually from the DVCA, but saw this thread and had to tell you about a spread on Sunday. I thought I would pop down to my clubs VETS for a few quite jars and could not believe the spread. It included(and remember VETS = fat old blokes:

7 Trays of Sandwiches
2 Trays of Cheese and Biscuits
4 Fruit Trays
1 Bowl of lollies
3 plates of Party Pies/Sausage Rolls
2 Cakes


BUT the thing that topped it off, was...........

36 Pieces of Chicken from KFC!!!

Gold!

Bonbeach are the worst...it's a 5 minute walk back to the rooms where a packet of Twisties and half a can of Fanta await! No joke.

It's a long way to go not to get some decent food!
 
Re: Best Arvo Tea VTCA

From what i have read, the boys are YCCC get spoilt!

spotty is great if all you want is donuts... and Keilor have been know to out do themselves on occasion....
 
Re: Best Arvo Tea VTCA

Bentleigh crack out a couple of trays of Subway. Ajax is a box of sangas in the park. Their supporters are great though, start having a crack before the players are even in the clubrooms. Hoppers is great, mainly because you can duck off to the TAB for a punt. Seddon's was quality back in the day, but has fallen away and was terrible last time I was there. The rest are all pretty much on a par with each other.
 
Re: Best Arvo Tea VTCA

haven't been to Footscray United in a long while but their afternoon teas were as bad as their facilities last time I was there

YUCK

Seddon has always rated highly ... YCCC being catered for is up there, Spotty always plentiful with the ladies in the canteen doing a good job, St Bernards has improved since Davo in charge of bar, Chelsea always ok, YP. AN, RP/B and Doutta just average. In NorthA - Tulla ok, PD and KP - ordinary, Abers Ok, FU - as bad as their facilities, Albions ok.

I asked one of the sweet old ladies at Spotty for a cup of coffee once at arvo tea and she barked back "No, it's tea time not coffee time" ???
 
Re: Best Arvo Tea VTCA

Seddon used to be the pace setters for a number of years. Not sure what they're like now.

The worst in recent memory?... Ajax. One plate of tasteless sangers made from week old bread and a bowl of soggy watermelon bits. And that was to also share with the blokes playing on their 2nd ground!

Flemington's 2nd XI spread on the weekend was the worst I have had in some time.

However, the lads made up for it with beers put on for us after the match. Thanks fellers!

Tuck in?? I love it. Only problem is, after i have "inhaled" 5 dohnuts, I either end up chasing the pill to the boundary line, or I am asked to bowl by the skipper...... both end in severe gut problems!!! Still love them dohnuts though:D!!
