GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" April 6, 1997 - No. 1
The 1997 season has finally arrived and I would like to take the opportunity to welcome the new senior coach to the club Anthony Pavey. Anthony comes to Griffith with an imposing coaching record and we all hope that in 1997 the Swans can keep the winning sequence going.
Congratulations also go to our Reserves and Under 18's coaches, Craig Bretherton and George Duncan, and we all hope your respective teams will improve on their 1996 efforts.
The Club would like to welcome all new players for the 1997 season, as well as those players going around again this year. We wish you all the best of luck for the season.
Congratulations from the off-season go to Greg Collins and Karen Brown on their engagement and Gary Argus and Peta Bennett on their wedding.
Today we make the trip to the RAAF base to meet the newly amalgamated North Wagga-RAAF team. I am sure the opposition will be pumped up for a big first up effort, but I know our guys are aware of the importance of winning the early games. Let's make sure we do win, and teach the new blokes the song after the game.
The Player Profile will start of with Matthew Kennny.
