While many of these have my name mentioned(my grandmother saved all these for me) they give you a little bit of appreciation of SANFL football in the 60's and also South Australian District cricket in the same era and Northern Territory Football league in the 1970/71 football season in Darwin.
The year I played in Darwin a former Port Adelaide and Sturt player,Peter Yeo, played in the finals in Darwin which was a bit controversial at the time.
Some years ago now he suffered a crippling injury in his home.
I have attached a link about Peter which also links to a radio interview he did on the ABC Radio conversations with Richard Fiedler.
So some of these articles are posted for my niece Carly's benefit and a bit of a grandfatherly boast that I once could play a little bit.
So forgive me for my self indulgence.
