    (1) " Carrajung played with only 12 men"
    https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/224879427
    (2) "it is understood that Korongvale did not have a full team"
    https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/4404974
    (3) Could be an under age / youth league

    (4) could be a B grade / reserve team

    there are two additions Barnes & Gibbs.
    I have deleted Sporn (match void) and Tschirpig (not a senior game) from the list

    i've amended Jack Maguire to 31 goals
    https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/57010693

    haven't included
    37 - O'Loughlan Perth Central Central v Cobbers (Temporance league) 1937
    as wasn't sure if it was an open age /senior league

    The Band of Hope league could be underage. This needs to looking at
    30 – Vic – Lance Joyce – Carlton Comrades (v Hawthorn) – Band of Hope - 1930
    https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/69524472

    Under rules the score has to happen in a senior match.
    "B" sides and "under age" games aren't included.

    Teams from multi divisional leagues ( ie SAAFA or VAFA) are fine as along as the score is made
    by the teams senior side not their seconds

    We are happy to recieve any information / corrections you have

    Yorketown was my home town in my younger days and I knew Rex quite well later on, though I was only 5 or 6 when this happened and don't remember anything about it. I'm not sure whether it would have been an A Grade game; I think it's much more likely to have been in the B Grade, but again not totally sure. The competition should have been the Southern Yorke Peninsula Football League, and Stansbury the opponent.

    The Cowra Guardian issue of 23 May 2006 shows him as kicking 35 goals in that match.

    Am double-checking other papers around that date. Will update later in day.

    Not all regional newspapers are on Trove.

    You better schedule a trip to the Victorian State Library.

    The Swan Hill Guardian was published from 1938 to 1971 apparently (going by SLV catalogue), so will probably be on microfilm.
    The WW1 years of earlier similar title are on Trove but not for years later on.

    My thoughts, Its cold and wet and you're in a shit team so you may not want to turn up to games thus forcing the club to pick young kids or old men to fill the team.

    If you are a gun full forward needing 10 for your hundred then your teammates will kick the ball at you no matter where you stand. Run past for a handball in the goalsquare.
