GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 19, 1964 - No. 12
By Neil Griggs: What a grand exhibition SWDFL and Hampden League turned on for the big crowd last Saturday. It certainly was football worthy of a championship final and pleased even the many Rugby fan present.
Congratulations to all South West players on a wonderful performance, and a special word for coach Bernie Sculley for his grand job.
We, in Griffith, were proud of our four players, Len Sexton, Peter Morris, Vic Hathaway and Bill Biron, who played as we expected and all pulled their weight.
It was bad luck for Bob Little that he had to miss out through injury. He should be back on deck today.
It was rather strange with nothing to do on Sunday, although our players enjoyed themselves at a pleasant Sunday morning.
Coach Peter Morris is keen on such functions and, despite two recent loses, club spirit has never been higher.
Now that all the glory games are over, we can get back to serious competition football again.
We visit Ariah Park and hope to notch an overdue win. John Foley, however, will be missing and could also miss another couple of games following his heavy knock against Leeton. He will be a big loss.
