The story of the Club’s first team, as told by foundation member Edward Stanley.
Captured above by the Canberra Times on August 17, 1967 is a rare moment in the Club’s early history – our first ever team. Playing in the Gunners’ first Intervarsity Games (later renamed Uni Games), founding member Edward Stanley shares the details:
“I’m sorry to say we were slaughtered in the carnival. We won nil and score a total of two goals, one to yours truly – the first for La Trobe I think in Intervarsity competition!”
“The picture has been defaced a bit because I immodestly sent a copy to my mum with “Me” and an arrow scrawled on it.”
We would appear a few more times in Canberra Times, including a Premiership photo from 1977 and a drawn result from 1978.
