SWANS CLUB NOTES: "The Aussie Ruler" July 30, 1967 - No. 15
The Red and White confounded quite a few critics by defeating Ganmain last Sunday and also pleasantly surprised all their supporters with the ease of their win.
Coach Kevin Kirkpatrick proved an inspiring leader and rated as best in a team in which everyone played well.
For his grand effort, Kevin won another major award in the Griffith Co-op-Ernest Hillier suit trophy; the points allotted being Kevin 3, John Scott 2, Bill Biron 1.
Sid Robins, featuring in a new roll as full forward, just managed to kick his first ever goal before switching to the other end to replace fullback Frank Conlan, who was taken off with a finger injury.
Our seconds appeared too tense and didn't settle down until the last quarter when they showed some of the football expected of them, but it takes more than one quarter to beat teams such as Ganmain.
Our best in this game were Joe Whyte, Reg Higgins, Don Best and Darryl Collis.
The thirds, benefitting from their game against Turvey Park, showed improved form to win well.
