GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" April 12, 1987 - No. 2
Contrary to opinion the Swans are not dead and buried. Congratulations to Martin 'Ducky' O'Donnell as coach of the Seniors. Shane 'Bat' Best who has the 2nds after Robert 'Claude' Crowe's work commitments ruled him out, and Brother Ed Havelock for the Under 19's. Training has been excellent, although members are down. Spirit and endeavour has been tremendous with good performances at the Wagga and Whitton knockouts - particularly by the younger players - Peter Lonergan, 'Spanner' Spencer and Justin Barry.
We would warmly welcome our generous sponsor for 1987 - the Griffith Ex-Servicemen's Club. Warm-up tops have been generously supplied to the Under 19's by George Murray's Beelbangera Store and Coca Cola, the Reserve Grade by Beautiful Bricks and the Seniors by individual business people whose named are in the Clubhouse.
Best wishes to club stalwart Gerry Toscan on his baby daughter Kate and his coaching appointment at Coleambally.
Congrats to Grant Henderson on his election as RFL President.
Our selectors this year are Graham Leask, Shane Best and Garry Waters. The heads are on the block fellas. Vacancies still exist for the Committee - give Mary (Collins) a ring. Good luck to all clubs this season. Up The Swannies!
