SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" June 18, 1967 - No. 10
Three wins were achieved against A.P.-M. last Sunday despite some atrocious kicking that saw our aggregate tally for the day 25 goals 58 behinds, certainly some "fancy" kicking.
Claiming the SWDFL record for 14.32 which saw premiership football inaccuracy the first 18 ended up with a go down the drain with bad kicking.
Coach Kevin Kirkpatrick, rated as best afield and with three points, went further ahead in the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award with the other points going to Roger Thom (2) and John Fitzpatrick (1).
Tried at centre forward, Roger Thom, with some splendid marking and good understanding, featured in most of our scores but not in the inaccuracy, kicking 5.5.
Our half back line of Sid Robins, John and Brian Fitzpatrick were on top all day and made scoring hard for the Bombers.
Apparently top of the page last week went to the head of our Seconds, as despite winning by 67 points (75-8), they did not play really well.
In his first game this year Ray Davies, rated No. 1 player with Don Best, Joe Whyte and Darryl Collis also going well.
Scoring 1.11 (17) to 1.1 (7) , our Thirds won "somehow" with Wayne Robins, Geoff Reed and Danny "Knosie" Knox best.
