Football Results (26/4/21)

It was a mixed bag of results for both the Rams and the Rovers in the MFL and PDFNL, the teams had a combined total of three wins from eight games.

One team that is surprising in the PDFNL is Yarrowayah, a team that used to be belted fairly regularly has been dishing out beltings so far this year.

The North Tennis Courts

September 24 2020

Up until very recently, those viewing Deniliquin on Google Earth would of seen the North Tennis Courts from the image taken in 2018 as Google takes a while to present new images of places (street view is even slower).

Now a new 2020 image has been taken of the town and the courts are gone as they are now just remaining in history books and old Google Earth images from 2002 to 2018.

Those who used the courts battled for the facility to survive for a number of years but progress dictated that the space is going to be something new and exciting for the town, at least we certainly hope that is the case.

North School used to use the courts and Edward River Oval for sport and carnivals and now with the courts gone and the oval soon to follow suit, something unique will disappear as DNPS had the two all to themselves for several decades.

Hopefully the game of tennis does not die off in Deniliquin as there are still plenty of grass courts left, it is a fun game once you get the hang of it though it is best played in winter or spring as summer play is mighty uncomfortable.

Sports Talk (12/9/20)

September 12 2020

Due to the virus, Rovers Seniors and Reserves teams in Football and Rovers A Grade, B Grade, C Grade and C Reserves are unable to play in competition this year.

But kids are able to and today was Grand Final Day for the four Rovers sides to make it to the big day.

Football

Fourths lost 12.5 – 77 to 2.2 – 14 (vs Berrigan)

Netball

Under 17’s lost 55 to 28 (vs Berrigan)
Under 15’s won 25 to 14 (vs Blighty)
Under 13’s won 27 to 17 (vs Berrigan)

Conclusion

Congratulations to the Under 13’s and the Under 15’s sides for being premiers and commiserations to the Under 17’s as well the Fourths in Football, all four sides had fantastic seasons in a time where there is so much uncertainty in the way we live and they should all be proud of representing Deniliquin so well this year.

We’ll be back soon with a new edition of Sports Talk.

1944 Dust storm

September 8 2020

On a December day in 1944, Deniliquin was hit by a dust storm and five photographs were taken as it arrived at the Airport.

The five photographs were not numbered but hopefully we got them in the right order, what we do know is that the storm arrived at 4:30pm.

It is possible that this occurred on December 10 1944 as the Daily Telegraph reported that Deniliquin had a storm on December 10.

Storm is getting coming
Storm in the distance
It’s getting closer
The storm is here, are those trenches in the centre?

As seen in the last photograph the dust storm reached a row of three visible aircraft that you can see in the fifth photo.

The best thing about the photos is that it gives a good look at the RAAF buildings, aircraft and personnel.

We will continue to try find out more about this event.
