1962

Griffith's Season in Review - 1962
A disappointing season after a superb start. On the opening day at our new ground, the Griffith Ex-Servicemen's Oval we crushed Whitton by 150 points. Coach Len Sexton was in superlative form, booting 11 of the teams 26 goals. 
One of the familiar faces left the Club following the game, Vic Hathaway, such a great ball-getter and thoughtful player, had given his best for nine seasons but, with his future in mind, he accepted the assistant-coach's job at Berrigan.
Despite this early season setback confidence was boosted when we won our next two games, first at Ganmain and then at home against reigning premiers Turvey Park. 
Poor finishing proved costly at Matong but we bounced back to defeat the Imperials at Narrandera. In a spiteful game centre half back John Anderson suffered a season ending shoulder injury while utility Kevin Luhrs was reported for kicking. He was found guilty and suspended for three games.
By July we were in with an excellent premiership chance. But we dropped five of our final seven games and slid out of finals reckoning. 
During the season we introduced several newcomers to the team. One of them, Allan Hudson, who made such a hit as a boxer proved not only was he tough but a very fair footballer. Hudson along with Len Sexton and Bill Biron represented SWDFL against Sydney at Trumper Park. Len Sexton for successive seasons headed the SWDFL's goalkicker list with 57 goals. 
Throughout the season we experienced problems regarding committeemen, not helped by the strangely unusual amount of comings and goings. Jim Andrea, John Anderson, Vic Hathaway and Fred Gordon having left town. Clive Lane for health reasons while Norm Coleman and Jack Slattery were released for poor attendance. Nevertheless capable men in Roy MacKenzie, Mick Newman, Fred Savage and John Reed were elected to a committee which had become depleted and well below strength.

HEINZ-ADVOCATE SPORTING AWARD - John Cramp
By Neil Griggs
The Heinz-Advocate "Sportsman of the Week" award goes to Australian Rules footballer John Cramp for his superlative play in the S.W.D.F.L. competition game at the Ex-Servicemen's Oval last Sunday, when the Griffith team lowered the colours of the leading team, Coolamon.
John stationed at full back, for the first time, a placing incidentally widely criticised by most followers of the team, proved what a talented and adaptable player he is, by featuring as one of the inspiring players in the grand team effort that carried Griffith to a much needed victory.
Quickly settling down in his new position John, too pacey for his Coolamon opposite, was early under notice with some spirited clearances and, in fact, was the wrecker of many Coolamon hopes right throughout the game.
Teaming his pace with fine anticipation, safe marking, good kicking and tenacious play, John truly merited his award after the game, as the best Griffith player.
John, who came to Griffith this season from South Australia, has proved a valuable gain to the first 18 having been one of the team's best and most consistent players right throughout the season, despite the fact that he has been used in a utility role being switched from position to plug gaps in the line-up occasioned by the frequent reshuffling necessary to replace several injured players.
That he has always accepted the selectors moves without demur and has always given his best clearly illustrates that John is more than just a good player - he is a good club man.
There is no doubt that John will play a leading roll in all future games as Griffith strives for a premiership win.
The weekly award of a carton of Heinz products awaits John at the Advocate office.

HEINZ-ADVOCATE SPORTING AWARD - Len Sexton
By Neil Griggs
Australian Rules captain-coach Len Sexton wins the Heinz-Advocate "Sportsman of the Week" award for his outstanding exhibition in Griffith's crucial S.W.D.F.L. competition game at Coolamon last Sunday.
Battling for competition points to qualify for the final four Griffith had to win this vital clash with the leading team to stay in calculations for premiership honours and that they failed could in no way be attributed to Len's performance as he set his team an inspiring example and was generally knowledge as the best player afield.
Len played on the ball for most of the game and repeatedly initiated attacks with speedy play and long kicks, but was always ready to exchange hand passes or short kicks with a better positioned team-mate
Ever alert to sense a scoring opportunity he kept Griffith right in the game with his fast break through's and his personal contribution to the score of 55 was 40 points which included six goals. These goals took Len to the top of the goal kicking ladder and he has a great chance of repeating last season's achievement of being leading goalkicker of the competition.
Now in his second year with the Griffith Club, Len, this season, represented the S.W.D.F.L. in Sydney and was awarded the handsome Shell Medal as the best and fairest S.W.D.F.L. player.
Len is also a talented cricketer and could be that nourished by the tasty contents of a carton of Heinz products that awaits him at the Advocate office he could strive for a place in the country team which plays the touring English team at Griffith on November 14.
