SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" September 4, 1966 - No. 19
Not a very impressive performance as a semi-final preview, but we managed to stagger home for a 28-point win at Matong.
The Magpies impressed as a team with definite potential.
Sid Robins and John Foley played well all day to clearly rate as our best, with Kevin Kirkpatrick, John Fitzpatrick, Bob Little and Mal Russell giving good support.
Bob Little was a little erratic with his kicking, but his five gave him 18 in three games as full forward. Not in Kevin Fruend class, perhaps, but good by Griffith standards.
Congratulations to Kevin on his decisive win in the goal kicking.
Our seconds had a big win but will have to play a lot more of their better football to be a real premiership chance. Best were Ray Smith, Mick Newman and Ron Dreyer.
The season has now finished for some clubs, and to them and the ones who have teams still active, go our thanks for the keen but sporting manner in which their games against us have been played. Better luck next year.
To all finalists we extend best wishes for an injury-free series. May the best teams be premiers.
