GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 11, 1963 - No. 16
By Neil Griggs: Although defeated, we were pleased with our performance against Ariah Park-Mirrool - the team played with zest and spirit and it was their best effort for some weeks.
It was good to see Bob Spears back in action once gain. He asked for a change of position and was tried at full forward. Somewhat similarly shaped to leading goal-kicker, Rex Burge, Bob proved a sprayer, too, and this made it easier amongst the defenders.
Len Sexton has played a lot of good football in his three years with Griffith, but his exhibition last Sunday could have been his best. His king-size effort was a real inspiration to the players.
The second 18 remained in the battle for the finals with a good win, and their strong finish was encouraging.
Ron Pattison, who has not played for four years until this season , turned in a good game to win the shirt award, whilst John Lane's effort to take out the first 18 shirt award was a beauty.
Everything is going well with our Ball arrangements. Friday, August 16, is the big night, and it should be good-o.
