SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" May 27, 1967 - No. 7
We started the day off well against Leeton with a good win in the Third 18 game, after which the Seconds turned on their best performance of the year to score an easy 74 points win after kicking 1.10 in the first quarter.
Our best in these games were "Rocco" Robinson, David Forrester, Warwick Collis (Thirds) and Darryl Collis, Ray Smith, John Mitchell (Seconds).
Unfortunately the hat-trick eluded us when Leeton finished too well in the last few minutes to win by 13 points.
Taking out points in the Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit award for our best players were Bob Spears ("the tank") 3, Kevin Kirkpatrick 2 and Sid Robins 1.
Congratulations from players and members to Wayne Bromley and Eva McKeirhan on their marriage last Saturday. They say the "bucks" party was a "real ball".
Everyone is happy Mal Russell escaped from his bout with a train last Friday without serious injury. If he is as lucky with his lottery ticket he may be able to replace his car which ended up a heap of mangled junk.
Sufficient to say of last Sunday's (South West League) debacle at Ganmain that only a very few, including replacement Kevin Kirkpatrick, emerged with their playing reputation unblemished.
