I could have sworn Simon Fraser went to Norwood, but there is no record of him having done so. I must have imagined it.

Me too, that's my memory.
Gavin Wheaton is another. As a kid that really disappointed me, he had a great first year with us.

Coming the other way - Simon Porter.

I played cricket with Gavin Wheaton.

I agree, aldo, thought he would tear it up on the field.

I can’t remember the answer either but he wasn’t very complimentary about the coach.  

Interesting. I'm covering that issue in the book.

I played in that competition from 1960 to 1963 for the Richmond Tigers and wire red and white jumpers [/quote]

There was no team by that name when I played. Other teams in the comp which I remember were Western Youth Centre, Netley and Centrals. I remember Glynn Hewitt playing for WYC at the time. A representative side was picked towards season's end and used to play North Adelaide at Richmond Oval and at Greenacres (I think) John Burkett and Damian Walker were the coaches. A few Westies players came to the games, but I don't recall who they were.
The Rebels coach was Jack Fletcher, assisted by a Mr Baker (can't remember his first name.) Neither could take training very often, so we would organise ourselves. Training took place at the Weigall Oval, which was surrounded by a trotting track. Training usually consisted of a few laps, circle work and a scratch match. Sometimes horses would be working out. We used to keep each other honest at training. At the end of the season, a presentation night was held at the club.[/quote] The WYC team came in the last season Richmond Tigers played. My father and a man John Stevens coached the team . We trained at Keswick Reserve on Everard Ave . Peter Mac Donald played in the team and he went on to play league for Westies.

I remember a Mac Donald playing at full back for us when the ball was down there a lot. I think he only played 1-2 seasons. Would this be the Peter Mac Donald you mentioned and if so what year would it have been? At a guess, I would say that Bob Keddie was probably the coach.

OK, which player (since 2000) had the worst hairstyle of all time?

Described by a supporter as "....................... looked as if he was wearing a slug on his head"

Second question, what number did Paul Nicholls wear?

Nicholls #32 is corret.

The hairstyle player was a very good full-forward.

Still need a Dutch and Chinese sounding surname?

Vanderloo corrcet.

Simon Wong is also correct, but I was thinking of Michael Poon, who some of you may remember. I'm not 100% sure if Michael's name was of Chinese origin, but I think so.

Still waiting on the full-forward with the hair.

Good player, went back to Victoria after Westies and was excellent in the VFL until a few years ago.

Lee, Aldo, I thought Gavin Wheaton had a serious injury that curtailed his football career.
Long time ago, testing the old memory.

I was talking to a fellow Westies fan about Wheaton yesterday. He played a couple of games under Bob Keddie in '73, then had a terrific year in '74 under Fos Williams but didn't see eye to eye with Fos and moved to Norwood. I think he only played one season with Norwood and then quit to concentrate on his medical career which has been very successful. I too have a vague memory of him doing a knee but it doesn't seem to fit with what I've been told by a reliable source.

I too played with the Rebels in the Westies Junior league. We wore black & white, trained at Weigall Oval & played our home games at Richmond Oval. We had an awesome team & only lost one game for the season - the wrong one.
Greg Frick was the captain playing as a ruck rover & he won the association medal. I think he polled votes in nearly every game. He went on to play four league games. His first league game was at Unley & the coach brought him on at half time to replace an injured Terry Papst & put him at full back on Paul Bagshaw. Not a good move coach. Greg captained the reserves & eventually went to Henley.
Three players, all mates, came together from Adelaide High School - Peter MacDonald, David Nuske & me to play for the Rebels. It caused a few problems as we were all required players at the School.
Peter Mac was about 6’5” or more at age 13. He dominated the ruck & was a strong mark around the ground. He was outstanding at School & College footy & ended up playing 37 league games before being transferred to the Riverland by his employer. He then took over a family winery in NZ where he remains today.
There was another young player in our side that you will all remember - Glyn Hewitt - he could play then & of course went on to a successful league & interstate career.
Our coach was Bill Baker & the team manager was Jack Fletcher.
They were good days.
Somewhere in my archives I still have the team photo. I must hunt it up & have a look at it.
