I once asked Doug why Tim Symes couldn’t get a game.
I can’t remember the answer either but he wasn’t very complimentary about the coach.

Correct Wolfman.

I don't recall seeing him play for us, but saw him play several games for Norwood, probably during 1964, the year he made team of the year. At that stage my father, a Norwood supporter, was taking me to the footy most weeks.

Not long afterwards, about 1966, I began playing junior footy in Westies' zone, for a team called the West Adelaide Rebels, a strange name for an U14 team. We wore black and white lace ups and played on an oval adjacent to Adelaide Airport. Anyway, the upshot is, many of my new team mates were Westies' supporters and we started attending games at Richmond Oval after being dropped off there after our game had finished. I guess I took the tag, 'rebel', seriously and did just that. Dad was disappointed at my defection and reminded me constantly that Norwood was a more successful club.

Over the years we had many emotional charged discussions whenever our teams met. Ironically, Dad always complained about the umpiring whenever the Legs lost to Westies. If ever a team has been gifted wins it is Norwood. AND to make matters worse, how many players, in their prime, have we given up to Norwood over the years - maybe a good question - Since the 1960s, how many players have switched clubs between West and Norwood?

Who am I?
I played 84 games and kicked 7 goals over 7 seasons.
In that time I played a variety of positions as my height and mobility allowed me to do so.
I was recruited from Glenelg and debuted for Westies in Round 4 against South at Adelaide Oval in 1981.
My namesake is a British actor who starred in films such as The Day the Earth Stood Still and the TV series, The Third Man.

Re Vertudaches, that's why I mentioned Norwood, but doubted he would have made an Advertiser TOTY.

Yes, Vertudaches had a golden couple of years at Norwood when they weren't travelling particularly well. I judge him to have played a similar game to John Burkett. Obviously, by the time he came to us, he was well past it.

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.
