GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" July 14, 1985 - No. 14
Well what can you say? A great display of football from two grand sides. A fast and furious game saw the Swans go down by one kick. Congratulations to the Swans for a display that showed our critics that football is alive in our young side. Best players were coach Ian Geddes, Gerard Toscan, Scott Barber and Neil Bruce.
Our seconds were outgunned by a well drilled Wagga unit, who showed more desire than a newlywed.
Meanwhile the Thirds, who could display a bit of desire as well, wore town the Tiger pups to consolidate their finals claim. Coach Garry Gardner begged his players to lift after the first half and finally they did. His concern is evident as the young Swans have a few problems up front but should consolidate in the remaining matches.
Up and coming events include our auction sale which is still in need of articles for sale. I believe we are to auction anything from the President's glasses to the Secretary's wheelchair. The recent gala night to premiere the movie "Starman" was a great success. Other clubs should note that our car raffle is only available until the season's close and for $2 you could win a Toyota Corolla.
Today we meet the Bulldogs, so let's see three grades fire up. Up the Swans!
