GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" May 3, 1987 - No. 4
Oh what a feeling Narrandera. After 6 long years of coming off second best we finally broke the drought.
The side underwent a transformation from ugly ducklings into Swans (well all except Marty - he remains the Duck).
The day was full of highlights including Harro's shot for goal from centre half back which bounced through for a behind. Robbie Owen's head hunting experience. Brendan 'Arlo' Guthrie's handful of goals and Ducky's tiptoeing escapade through half a dozen players which resembled Tiny Tim with a receding hairline.
But it was a different story in the Second Grade fixture with Shane's boys going down quicker than Essendon did against the mighty Blues. The only outstanding players being Bobby Berton, Roy 'the boy' Agresta, Frankie 'Avalon' Morgan and the man who makes Bruce Doull look beautiful, Lennie Brown.
Once again the side was indebted to the U19s players who helped make up the numbers.
Red Ted's Under 19's came out of hibernation and played and won a game with best man afield young Michael 'Sam' Foxall playing a game that would have put him on par with Gary Ablett. Helped out by Peter Lonergan, the Norma Jeans man and a few other players who haven't been around long enough to know that it costs to get their in the Record.
This week Coolamon. Let's take the jump out of the 'hoppers'.
