St George FC History Released

2013 David Green smallDavid Green, (pictured) a former St George player who was runner-up in the 1964 Phelan Medal, has written a trilogy on the history of the St George Australian Football Club.

He has spent years researching his subject and interviewed hundreds of former players and officials, not only from St George but other clubs as well as league officials, some dating back to times in WWII.

These three books, each of which are dedicated to a period from the club’s official 1929 beginnings in the senior division, are printed in an A4 format with sensational hard glossy cover and back.

For a real footy fan they are a must for their library.  The information they contain is interesting and at times reveals part of history of the game, not only for the club, but also the NSW Football League, unknown before today.

Each are about 50mm thick and contain about 700 pages or so of text and images, 2100 pages in all.  Should you purchase a set you will be absorbed with the information they contain.

To obtain your suite, call David on 07 33950784 or email him at degreen@bigpond.net.au, he will advise you of the cost and the best way to go about placing your order.

Now I can tell you that because of the size and content of these books he only had a limited number printed.  Most of these are already gone so if you are keen, be early to get your copies.  They come recommended.

GREEN’S WORK ON BOOK CONTINUES

2013 David Green smallFormer St George player of the 1960s, David Green, has made another journey from his Brisbane home to Sydney to gather more information on a book he is writing on the first fifty years of the St George Club, 1929-1978.

Green has made remarkable progress since we last reported on his efforts and recently has spoken to numerous people in his quest to document an account of the happenings, people and environment of the St George Club in that 50 year period.

His work has amassed an amazing collection of photographs, oral interviews and statistics but as he said, it’s a labour of love.

“I thought I would get this done sooner than later but it still looks like being 12 months or so until it’s finished” Green said, “theres so much to do.”

“Then of course I’ll have to get it edited and printed, so it’s all ahead of me.  I just hope those who read it will enjoy the experience.”
