I think its the same jumper they wore against us last year Billy, it looks a bit like the old Waverley jumper

I believe it will be a different jumper this year.  Rumours are either a Sandridge jumper prior to the VFA and being named Port Melbourne, the other is a 1930s jumper similar to the Port Colts jumper with a PMFC monogram on the front (similar to this years clash jumper.)  I'll post up photos of the clash jumper in a separate thread.

Sandridge as in the team that I used to play at Lagoon oval that was affectionately nicknamed "the vegies" ?

I still prefer the name Sandridge to Port Melb and Emerald Hill to South Melb

They changed their names to cash in the Melbourne name during the Gold Rush era.

Just a little bit of history.

This seasons night match was not the first between Port and Willy for points they played under lights a the Lake Oval South Melb on Wed April 24th 1957 which Williamstown won by 2 pts.I was there with my father and from memory the crowd was 10,000.Being at South it was almost a home game for the Port supporters.This was the era when both teams doninated the VFA.
