GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" September 21, 1969 - No. 22
By Swan: Last Sunday must surely go down as Griffith's day with three wins in the second semi finals and all three red and white teams moving into the grand finals.
Let us hope we can repeat the efforts at Narrandera next Sunday.
Another shocking day which makes one wonder if somehow the footballers of the area have offended Jupiter Pluvius
Let's hope for a couple of fine weekends to finish off the series really successfully.
Last week we said we were hoping for three wins in the semi-finals and its now history that those hopes are realised as was the prognostication of President Les Robinson at a steak night last Friday week when he forecast the hat-trick.
We may have been a bit lucky to achieve the two wins though, the Seconds only fell over the line in the last 25 minutes thanks to the trusty boot of Mick Newman.
Our Club Best and Fairest awards have been announced and are: Firsts: Sid Robins, runner-up: Frank Conlan. Seconds: Mick Newman, runner-up: Les Hodson. Thirds: Denis Tyndall, runner-up: Jay Cullen.
Congratulations to these players and also our South West Award winners - Denis Tyndall (Best and Fairest, thirds), Grant Luhrs (goalkicking, seconds, Chris Sharpe (goalkicking, thirds).
Best of luck to all teams today.
