 GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Sou'wester" August 6, 1978 - No. 14 

By Swan:  Three wins away from home is a good day's football for any club and we scored that way last Sunday at Ardlethan. Our Under 19's and our Reserves picked themselves up from spirited opposition to win at the right time in the game.

The absence of coach Kevin Kirkpatrick is showing its obvious effect in our Reserve grade, but we hope Kirky will be back from his illness to lead us in today's important match with Leeton.

Our Seniors ran to their fifth successive win in a game where the home team gave us a great fight in an excellent game.

Neil Thompson, with his six goals, again gave us that bite up front, but our backline attracted our better players with fine performances by Ian Wade and Sid Robins.

While our experience showed out through Bob McKenzie and Bob Greenwood, two of our younger stars were Robbie Owen and Jeff Mitchell.

We have been a month without football on our own ground and we hope to celebrate our return in today's big match with the Redlegs. Leeton gave us a drubbing the first-time round, and we have good memories.

We have struggled to get into the four and we do not intend to move over for any opposition. Leeton and Griffith matches are always top draw and today will be no exception.
