GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" May 4, 1975 - No. 3
By Swan: Two big wins against Whitton last week but still little to enthuse about as far as the First XVIII is concerned - there seems to be very little teamwork or even enthusiasm amongst our players at this stage.
Congratulations to Frank Valeri who played his first full senior match and kicked four goals to round off a great effort on his part. Glen Harrison had another good match - just a word about the statistics that are being kept, it is not the quantity of kicks that is important, it is how, where and when you get them and what you do with them that's counts.
Another good match from big Arch Wilkey - wish we had another three like him. Grant Luhrs was the Griffith Co-op Shirt award winner.
Peter Woodland kicked twenty "sausage rolls" in the Seconds and established what I think to be a new club record for one match. He was ably assisted by promoted young players Greg Savage, who kicked six goals, Graham Manning and Greg Hill, who both played really well.
The club's 200 Club competition is now pretty well sold out and will be drawn on May 16th in the club-rooms - a feature of the drawing this year will be the order of drawing the major prize in that all numbers will be drawn from the barrel and the last remaining number will win first prize, the second last number, second prize and the third last, third prize.
All 200 marbles will be drawn so members who have a ticket, come along and join the fun - food, drinks and games in the club rooms on May 16th.
