1961 Intervarsity Men

January 1st, 1961 - submitted by the black angels

            Rod Clausens  -  definitely a Blue

 

               Barry (Jock) Larkins

 

               John (Johnny) Liddelow – also a Blue I think

 

               Barry Dyke – changed surname to Bennett

 

               David Arnott

 

               Kayzes Zdanavicius

 

               Brian Arnott

 

               Ralph Treloar

 

               John Mercer (captain)

 

               Len 'Alf' Arnott

 

I seem to remember that there were twelve of us but that might have been in the A-Grade Vic Championships squad: Larkins and Zdanavicius were not in this latter squad.

 

The guys on the left are not really taller – parallax effect.  We weren’t a tall squad.  John Mercer and Barry Bennett were the centres at 6’3’’ (about 190cm).

 

Alan Landells was the coach and in one season he turned me into a much improved player: I think he did this for us all.

 

Len and Alf Arnott were brothers and went to Box Hill High:  Dave was a country boy.
