GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" May 5, 1985 - No. 4
Last Sunday with three good wins sees the Swans moving up the ladder. In a dogged affair in the Under 19's, the young Swans, lead by the Italian stallion Paul Romagnolo and Jamie Bennett, won by 4 goals. Coach 'Horsey' Gardner relishing the fact he didn't have to play in the Reserves, must be pleased with his young side who showed great endeavour . The Record Centre award courtesy of Leo & Eleanor Salvestrin goes to Mark Gullifer who proved back pocket players can kick, dobbed a 6-pointer.
Dad's Army, after a close win against the Tigers, blitzed the toothless Bulldogs in a great team effort. Not to be outdone by his son T.B. (Silver) Bennett kicking five goals and Ritchie Turner (Dons Pewter) shone out. Just to prove that archaeology and ancient history is still alive it was noted that the odd dropkick stab pass was used to good effect.
Coach Ian Geddes and assistant coach Scott Barber (Don's Pewter) and the sides humiliation of a brave Bulldog was the highlight of last Sunday. An all round effort saw a good 8 goal victory. Geddes at C.H.B. obviously showed organising ability and instilled great confidence into his younger brigade. The high flying Barber with 5 goals and having hand in several others was back to crowd pleasing best.
Today we bomb the Bombers. Up The Swannies!
