(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

30 - S.A – Rex South - Yorketown (v Stanibury) – Yorke Valley FA – 1963
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.

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.

late July / August seems to be occuring a lot on the list
My thoughts, Its cold and wet and you're in a **** 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.

Middle Brighton v six Moorabbin Park players plus
two barrackers.


At the end of the first quarter Moorabbin Park were one point in front.

For reasons unclear, most of the Moorabbin side hadn't turned up for the game

Despite the protests of Moorabbin, three Middle Brighton players continued the game from the
second quarter, kicking 47 goals against an absent team.

Most of the goals were kicked by Middle Brighton's Captain Ron Edmond

In an early game in July 1914 Middle Brighton had won 50 goals to nil against Hetherton

Re: One goal needed to win against an absent team

when did the rule come in where if the other team didn't turn up
the umpire starts the game and the first goal you score is the end of the game?
i know this happened once in a ntfl grand final
