SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" August 21, 1966 - No. 17
It was a little damp at Ardlethan last Sunday but no one was complaining about the rain.
The Stars kept within touch for three quarters, but Griffith stormed home with 7-1 in the last quarter to win by 59 points.
Angie Maloni, back after missing two games, revelled in the going and took out the Club award in a photo finish from the reliable Sid Robins.
The experiment in playing Bob Little at full forward was a winner - 8 goals in wet conditions was a really good effort.
Star of the seconds 46-point win was Oscar Biron. Some of his marks were worthy of a dry day. Others to do well included Terry O'Connor, Mick Newman and Denny Dreyer.
Our under 12's schoolboy had a big win over Leeton in the preliminary final and they may be our first team to win a long overdue premiership.
Arrangements are well in hand for our Club Ball on Friday, September 2, and it promises to be a good night.
Given good conditions we are confident spectators will not be disappointed today when we hope to end Coolamon's winning sequence. Notes No. 18 >>>
