GRIFFITH NOTES: "The Sou'Wester" August 23, 1981 - No. 17
By Swan: The Swans experienced a day of mixed fortunes last Sunday against the Narrandera Imperials.
The day started badly for the Swans when our Under 19 combination failed to capitalise on their good first half and went down to a strong finishing Narrandera side by 48 points. Best players for the Swans were Mark Tyndall and Ken "Roller " Skates.
The Second XVIII also went down fighting against a very determined Narrandera side. It was great to see Peter "Hoot" McGrath making a comeback to football through the Second XVIII. It just goes to show what a bit of G. and D. can do - well done "Hoot". Best players for the Swans were Randall "Randy" Strongman and Darryl Collis.
The tables were turned in the First Grade game for the Swans when a determined Griffith outfit outclassed the Imperials to register a great win. This must surely rate as the Swans' best game for the season and it shows that we certainly mean business. Every player gave his all which is required when playing top teams in the finals.
The best players for the Swans included Darrell "Split Pin" Collins, Roy Agresta, Glenn "Billy" Harrison, Marty O'Donnell and indeed every player wearing the red and white guernsey who took the field - well done fellas.
This week the Swans are at home to the Turvey Park combination. In all grades, a win is essential and I am sure every player making up the three grades for the Swans will ensure three good wins on Sunday. UP THE SWANS!
