SALTY'S NEW POSITION - by Brian Files
THE man that pulled Griffith Australian Football Club up by the bootlaces from the bottom of the ladder in the 1988 season to missing the finals by percentage this season (1989) has the chance to spread his expertise throughout the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA) in 1990.
The New South Wales Australian Football League, through commissioner John Yates and Riverina development manager Tony Turner, will announce in Griffith today that Les Parish has been appointed as part-time development officer withe the NSWAFL for the next season.
Parish, who played nearly 100 VFL games and was this season's winner of the Quinn Medal for the best and fairest in the Riverina Football League, commences his duties in April and will continue to foster football on a full-time basis until the end of September.
"Parish is the perfect person for the role with his experience and understanding of the game and especially the knowledge of what is required to bring juniors through the grades to the hurly-burly of big time football," Turner said.
"The area is too big for one man to do a successful job and with Parish looking after the western end of the Riverina it will make us available to more kids and hopefully lift the standard of the juniors," he added.
The NSWAFL has arranged transport for Parish through local Griffith firm Owen Toyota, who will supply him with a car for the six months.
Parish has spent a lot of his own time last season coaching in schools in the area as well as looking after the Griffith juniors, but said it was difficult to do well when he was virtually doing two part time jobs.
"It is something that I always wanted to get involved with and I am glad that this opportunity has come up," said Parish.
"Last year it was time consuming and was a hassle for my employers at the Griffith Hotel, who were very good to me in giving time off when I needed it, but it was hard trying to run virtually two part time positions.
"Last season I didn't do as much as I would have liked in the schools and hopefully this season each school in the area will be able to be visited more often," he added.
He went on to say that he would eventually like to get back into the AFL in some capacity in years to come as in his words ... "once you have been there - you miss it!" (The Area News - November 24, 1989).
