GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Sou'wester" June 18, 1978 - No.8
By Swan: A tragic day at the Griffith Ex-Servicemen's Oval last Sunday when one of our players, Ian Manning, suffered a heart attack at half time playing for the Griffith Swans Second XVIII.
Everything possible was done to revive him in the dressing shed but he passed away on reaching the hospital. Rod, to you and your family on behalf of the Griffith football teams, committee and supporters goes our deepest sympathy.
Narrandera were the visitors last Sunday and after a good hard game on a heavy ground, Narrandera proved too strong for our Third grade.
Griffith produced some good wet weather football after half-time in the Seconds to continue their winning way.
The scoreboard showed level at three quarter time in the Firsts but Narrandera got on top to win by 14 points at the bell. Today on Gissing Oval a win is a must if we have any chance to keep a final four spot, so we are hoping for this to eventuate.
