I'll sneak a look. I am sure I was not there; my earliest memories are 1953.

:D Maybe will show tough man Tomy New and Russ McIndoe, possibly a little early for great Penguin player Keith Warburton . Both Brighton and Williamstown had great players and strong teams in 1948. go zebs zebra :wink:

The only one from the team I remember is Johnny Walker, he played full forward in the early fifties.
