GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" April 9, 1983 - No. 1
Hi footie fans, welcome to the 1983 season and as we read of all the new talent injected into the League, you are assured of some entertaining football. A special welcome to all our new players, 1st, 2nd and Under 19's you will help to make up the Swans line-up this season and we hope you will enjoy your season with us as we will enjoy having you here.
Two of our local strays have returned, Jamie Robinson from college, Darrell Collins, a season with the Essendon District League - welcome back boys. Great to see Drew Luhrs and Shane Best back after missing two seasons with injuries.
Our best wishes go to our three Coaches for the '83 season, non-playing First grade coach Bob Greenwood (no stranger to the league), Seconds coach for his second term Ian Wade and also for his third term Under 19's coach Glenn "Billy" Harrison - good luck fellas. On closing may we wish every team in the league an injury-free season and much goodwill.
From the club and its committee, past and present, many thanks to Bert Schmidt for his years of faithful service to the league and best wishes to Garry Allen, may his association with the league be a long and happy one.
