Presentation Night - Spirit of Swans is still Strong

The Griffith Swans Aussie Rules and Netball Clubs put a year of fluctuating fortunes behind them to honour some of their top performers at a gala presentation night this month.

Football club president Rob Harrington described 2009 as a tough year, with a lack of numbers and commitment by some players letting the club down.

"It is hard to keep numbers up and I put a lot of that down to the lifestyle now," Harrington said.

"You talk to the older guys and they say when they used to play, that's pretty much what they did on a weekend.

"Now with everything people have on and all the competing sports it's very hard for a person to commit for six months. "But the spirit of the Swannies, he said, was still as strong as ever.

The under 15's winning the premiership was a real highlight for the year and we have some great prospects coming through," Harrington said.

The 2010 recruitment process is in full swing, with the club looking for a top coach and players.

The Swans netball girls had a more positive season, seeing three of their four sides making the finals.
