GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" June 16, 1985 - No. 10

A cold blustery day that would have had a nudist colony in trouble saw the Swans plucked by the Grasshoppers in two of the three games. Keeping their momentum the Under 19's  won well in the open game with 'Jim Bob' Bennett, undoubtedly the smallest player on the track, bag four majors. A good first half swung the young Swannies into a solid win.

John Seidel's 'Dad's Army' slumped to their second successive defeat. Poor conversion in the first quarter did not help. All's not lost, the weeks bye will help the tired legs. 'T.B.' continues his straight kicking with three goals.

Coach Ian Geddes had his problems against Coolamon. His charges looked as energetic as a tortoise at vital stages of the game. The State Rail Authority certainly could keep the trains running with the number of passengers standing around at times. With an open forward line the Swans played well but congestion became constipation in the second period. When the effort was needed the side created problems for themselves. The dynamic duo Scott Barber and Kevin Trafford kicked four each. The Don Buchanan Pewter went to Peter 'Scar' Telford.

Up and coming events are the Swans premiere night for the movie 'Starman' on Thursday, June 20. Don't miss it. 300 Club tickets are also available. Today we meet the Imps. Let's get amongst 'em. Up The Swannies!
