SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" September 12, 1965 - No. 20
Well, the first semi-final has been played and won, with Leeton packing up and Ariah Park-Mirrool moving on to the preliminary final against the loser of today's game.
Our players are all fit and fresh after the break last week and are confident they can make it three in a row over the Maroons.
A party from Hawthorn Club, which included captain-coach Graham Arthur and several players, visited Griffith at the weekend and attended the game on Sunday, but it is doubtful if they gained much for the somewhat disappointing exhibition in the main game.
Mick Newman won the chef's cap for his effort with the hot dogs last Sunday, while Don Best with his persuasive sales talk was top ticket seller. Incidentally, first prize in the competition, a transistor, ticket 1928, was not claimed. Do you have it?
Our thanks to the followers of other club who travelled to Griffith in uncertain weather. Their support was most appreciated and we hope they had an enjoyable day.
We play Ganmain in both firsts and thirds today and hoping the two good games and two wins.
