Where Players Were Recruited From - AFC Series (1979-86)

Postby Benchwarmer » Mon Apr 01, 2024 8:58 pm

I am in the latter stages of writing a book about the old AFC Night Series from 1979-1986 and need some assistance with some missing records for the section which will include an A-Z list of players who played in the competition.

Can anyone assist with the local club that the following SANFL players were recruited from:


CD
Max George 1981 (Which Geraldton NFL club?)

PA
Russell Edwards 1985

ST
Graeme Hyde 1984
Damian Kitschke 1984

WA
Michael Rennie 1984

WOOD
Malcolm Blight

Damian Kitschke was from the mid North. He may have been from BSR or one of its forerunners.
I think that Graeme Hyde was from Edwardstown
Russell Edwards was from Central District, I think that he is Greg Edwards brother.
Michael Rennie was from Glenelg
Malcolm Blight was from Woodville South

Graeme Hyde played for Edwardstown after his Sturt stint. He came to Edwardstown from Blackwood, but I don't know whether he played for Blackwood before going to stint.
The following is from the Edwardstone Football Club History :

"We might have won that year and so we had a lot to prove to ourselves in 1987. However, we really bonded and guys played above themselves. Neil Pearson and Tim Hoile had come from Norwood and began to feel ownership in the club. Hoile was a key forward, we had two good ruckmen, Graham Hyde from Blackwood"
