SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 1, 1965 - No. 14
We turned on some good football to defeat Coolamon rather more easily than we expected to do, thus remaining in second place. Best player were Bob Munnerley (Ron Dalla shirt), Vic Hathaway, Bill Tyndall and Len Sexton.
The 2nd 18 had an easy win - 119 to 13. Best players were Peter Booth (Ted Withnell's trophy), Ray Smith, Gordon Brennan.
John Hudson, a Port Adelaide first grader last year, had his first run with the Club in the seconds game.
We welcome another newcomer - Allan Norton-Baker, also transferred in employment - to the Red and White guernsey today.
The overdue Zone final has been played and lost, which was a big disappointment.
The Ovens and Murray, on the day, however, were too good, but there could have been a different result if umpire Montgomery (Ted Whitton's mate) hadn't turned it into a tiggy-touchwood affair.
Congratulations to Vic Hathaway on his award as the best South West player. From reports, however, it seems that apparently it was a rather controversial decision.
