GRIFFITH NOTES: "Riverina Football Record" May 27, 1990 - No. 6
Before we get into the nitty gritty, there are a couple of thank yous. Firstly, to Australia All Over for sponsoring the boundary and goal umpires again this year and secondly to the Area News who supplied the warm-up tops for the First Grade. They certainly looked the part as they ran onto the ground at Leeton two weeks ago, but as the Leeton scribe said in his notes for that match, it was a do or die effort and indeed that was the way they played the game. There was desperation in everything they did and the Swans had no answer. With the bye last week and two solid weeks on the training track it is hoped that the game of a fortnight ago was just a 'hiccup' and will not be as expensive as last year's loss to Narrandera was. The S.L.P.I. Award donated for the game by Quiprite finally went to Ian Geddes, Brendan Browne, Brian Rava and Damien Scott respectively.
The Reserves came back to the winning list with a 5 point victory and although any win is a good win, it was not the greatest football spectacle and had the game lasted another couple of minutes the result could well have been reversed. It was more good luck than management that won them the game. Best players were Bruno Ceccato, who go the mug and Robert Knox the financial remuneration. The Reserves won by 5 and the Under 18's lost by 5. It was a very scrambly game which also never reach any heights. Best players were Dean Owen, Gavin Owen and Robert Kelly.
Netball: The girls again went down 17-13, but are still enjoying themselves. Best players were Jenny Jefferies, Jan Collins and Rachel Neville.
Today's your last chance to get tickets for the movie premiere, Hunt For Red October, this Thursday night. It's a great movie, ask Thommo or Les, and you are urged to attend. All members of the committee have tickets so don't wait to be asked. Also there are still a few Cent-a-Number tickets left and this will be drawn tonight, so here's your last chance for that as well. There will be a Family Day with a Pig on the Spit on Saturday, June 2nd, which is our next bye, everyone welcome, players and supporters. Good day assured.
For those who didn't go to Leeton and would not have seen the notes, the total amount raised during the last home game for the Nyngan Flood Relief was $324.20. Thanks to all who contributed, every little bit helps.
Welcome Ganmain, we always enjoy your visits both on and off the field.
