SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 4, 1965 - No. 11
As anticipated, our game against Leeton was a beauty and the big crowd appreciated the spectacular exhibition.
Leeton's strong finish had our supporters on their toes, but everything ended well.
Sid Robins won another Ron Dalla Whitmont shirt, and his effort to keep Ray Dawson out of the game was a mighty valuable one.
Star full-forward, "Killer" Crewes, celebrated his engagement to local lass Pat Chandler with a very good game and four goals. Best of luck, Ian and Pat.
It was pleasing to see Cliff Hawkins come good. He should do much better from now on.
John Higgins (19th) came on in the third quarter for his first taste of senior football. A bright future is predicted for this lad.
Leeton were too strong in a good 2nd 18 game. Allan Anderson won the trophy as our best. Others to do well were John Kupsch, Brian Hawkins, Allan Kenyon and Kevin Luhrs.
Our 3rd 18 made it three in a row with a promising performance. There was keen competition for the club "divies", and the winners were James Browne, Tom Tyndall, Les Hodson, with several others close up.
