GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" September 6, 1964 - No. 19

By Neil Griggs: A Minor Premiership and a Gammage Medal on the one day gave the boys something to cheer about last Sunday night ... and cheer they certainly did when news of Len's Medal win came through.

Len Sexton had a brilliant year and, in every sense of the Best and Fairest award, he is a worthy winner.

A mighty effort saw us achieve our best ever win at Whitton, to consolidate our place at the top of the competition ladder and gain, for one year, the handsome Dal Williams Trophy.

All we need now to complete our season is the Argus Cup. Peter Morris has proved an able and inspiring leader and has the players right behind him as the "big ones" come along.

Highlight of the game at Whitton was the performance of Ian Crewes in kicking 12 goals - the season's highest game tally. "Killer" was in grand form and was a real match winner.

The club is pleased with the way the second XVIII has kept going right through to the last game.

They finished their season with a splendid effort, too, when they played on strongly to the siren to go down by four points.

A week's rest, then it's back to Whitton for the semi-final.    Notes No. 20 >>>
