Milton 1968

Milton Ulladulla Times, August 8 1968 – front page

Milton-Uiladulla Lady “Rebels” challenged the “Wild Southern” Milton Football team at Milton Showground last Sunday afternoon.The large attendance at the match resulted in a handsome sum being taken on the gate and by the tuckshop and competitions, the profit of which will be a wonderful boost to the Junior League.

This game, which was watched by a near record gate, was really entertaining.

The Lady Rebel and their attractive coach – ‘Harriet’ complete with flowing wig and gold cap, really made football look glamorous as they ran onto the field in their bright gold jumpers and shorts, football socks and boots – as can be seen by the above photo taken before the match.

Referee Ron Scanes really had his hands full with various “knock-ons” and loose handling, but nevertheless did a mighty job, even though no one seems to know the final score.

The Lady Rebels had their own make-up lady in attendance for any repairs needed to the hair-do or face, while Ambulanceman Stan was also on the job.

Goal-kicker R. Evans (Mrs.) for the Lady Rebels must have had some lessons from her husband Bob by her exhibition.

Not all try scorers are known, but Rhonda Evans and her sister, Gwen Turnbull and Helen Wilford notched points for the ladies.

It is rather puzzling that such a top team as Milton A Graders are at present could be caught off-side so many times. Perhaps it was because of the dazzling beauties they were playing.
