GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" May 26, 1991 - No. 6
Good morning, how are you, it’s good to see, three out of four wins against Turvey from the Swanies.
Our netballers had a red hot go, outclassed their opponents, came away with the points, and leading the way in what a superb effort was Rachel ‘Fifty's significant better half' Neville, Karen ‘Coke’ Evans, and evergreen Jenny Jefferies winning the coaches award.
Terry’s adolescent Third Grade dudes once again proved too strong for the depleted Bullpups outfit winning a percentage boosting encounter. Graham ‘Axle’ Foley played superbly and deservedly won the award with Paul Rovere, ‘Butch’ Butcher and ‘Dripper Dude’ Reid all having outstanding games.
The Second Grade allowed the opposition a too big a lead and their gallant effort in the last half of the game wasn’t enough to peg back the margin. This side has the unenviable honor of recording the club’s first defeat in any grade this year but with some players on the way back from injury the side can only be strengthened in the weeks to come. Barney ‘back in the USSR’ Dalgarno won the coaches award with Mal ‘I walk 500 miles’ Irvin and Leon ‘Headbutt’ Stow, also playing well the boy Browne put on a performance that might see him fly to the USA to join Jeff Fenech entourage in Las Vegas.
The First Grade win was welcomed by players and supporters alike with a certain player who has a jumper number between nine and eleven reportedly doing a cartwheel after the game. After another slow start the side had to come from a 30 point deficit at half time to win in commanding fashion with Jamie ‘Shandi’ Bennett and Chris ‘Conrad’ Conlan playing well and backing up the boy Toscan who battled hard all day as did boy Parish. The game also saw welcome returns to first grade for ‘Splashdance’ Collins and Andrew ‘Going to the Chapel’ Romagnolo.
This week we have our closest (distance wise) game so let’s make it our greatest win. Up The Swans!
