SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 12, 1966 - No. 8
We had hopes of a hat trick at Coolamon last Sunday, after winning the first two games, but John Fisher's Flyers had other ideas.
While we naturally were disappointed, it was pleasing to see the Greens come good - they and the other winners on Sunday should now get a new lease of life, and add more interest to the comp.
Kevin Kirkpatrick was our best, with good support from Len Sexton, Frank Conlan, Fred Gambell.
Vic Hathaway missed his first comp game for a long time with injury, while Bill Tyndall was a late withdrawal - both were greatly missed. Congratulations to John Fitzpatrick on attaining his majority.
After playing so-so (not quite the word used by their coach) our seconds really came good in the last two quarters to beat Coolamon easily by 75 points.
Our 3rd 18 also had an easy win - 102 to 12. Best were Phillip Smith, John Crump (hangover and all), Garry Owen and Les Hodson.
With the schoolboy teams winning three games on Saturday it was quite a good weekend, with only the top team having to hang their heads.
