1914  Griffith AFNC Centenary  2014   

Welcome

Hello and welcome everyone to my web-site. Griffith Swans Archive. This site, though unofficial is dedicated to the history of the Griffith Swans "Aussie Rules" Football / Netball Club. It is just my way of attempting to keep the history of this club alive, and as a fan of fifty years it is my little past time. All the information on this site is what I have gathered over the years from books, programmes, newspaper clippings, photo's and talking to older players, supporters and my own memories. Within the pages you will find a historical data base of Griffith Swans, including details of almost every competitive match played, along with the coaches, players, officials and many others who have served the club over the seasons from 1914 to the present day.
Many Thank for Looking
Trevor Harrison

HIP, HIP HOORAY
Let us all shout hooray
to all who play to-day,
Let's be bright and gay
that's the only way,
Give our boys a cheer
to help them win the game,
When they win, should they lose
cheer them just the same,
They are the hope of all
the Griffith fans today,
Help them on their way,
make them bright and gay,
Let us give three cheers to Griffith
and shout hip, hip hooray.
