SWANS CLUB NOTES: Riverina Football Record July 4, 1999 - No.12
THE Seniors recorded a hard fought 27 point victory over the finals aspirant Temora. It is the first time we have won at Temora and we certainly done it in fine style with a real even team effort. There were 20 contributors on the day in a good, hard game of football and it was a pleasure to watch.
The Awards in the Seniors were sponsored by Wade Transport and Martin Webb with Wickham Hill Packaging. They would have been difficult to give in such an even team effort. The Exies Dinner was won by high flying coach Paul "The Freak" Eyles up forward with some top grabs and six goals, the Snuggle Inn Towel was won by on baller Corey "I am not an animal" Frater for a 100% effort game, the Warren Lowry Award was won by Phillip "The boy from the bush" Rowston for a great game in the middle, and the McNabb Caltex Fuel Voucher was won by a consistent Damien "Tom Jones" Scott for a solid display on the last line of defence.
The Reserves struggled with numbers relying on several under 18s to get a team together and were soundly defeated. Many thanks to those under 18s who backed up and had to carry those players who decided against making the trip to Temora. The Billabong Bottle Shop Award was won by an on baller Matthew "Joe Cool" Bunn who never stopped trying, the Warren Lowry Award was won by backman Grant "The man with the golden tones" Kelson with another solid display and the Griffith Laundry Service Award was won by under 18 player Luke "The Whippet" Jasprizza who provided some spark across the half forward line.
The under 18s again put together four good quarters of football and ran out big winners. The C & P Express JDs Pizza was won by rugby league convert Kurt Webb with a good game, the Trevor Harrison Towel was won by strong man Stan Gash with a rugged game in defence, and the Lowes Socks went to clever on baller Michael Duncan with yet another top game.
The Cocktail Night was a terrific evening enjoyed by all. Thanks to those who organised the night and many thanks to those sponsors who donated goods. I dare say it was certainly the most expensive keg of beer ever purchased.
On the social scene please do not forget about the Trivia Night on Thursday 15th July. Everyone is welcome. $5 per person and tables of 10 at the Exies Sports Club. See Kelly Ruyg for details and bookings.
