Ray's footy trivia - the Upper Derwent snap

IN a roster match of the Southern Districts Football Association on May 25, 1948, between Upper Derwent and Bridgewater at Macquarie Plains, a goal post was snapped off at the base when grabbed by a Bridgewater player.

The post fell onto the playing area without anybody being injured. The goal umpire's flag was used as a post until the original one was restored.

Bridgewater won the game with 11.14 (80) to Upper Derwent's 9.12 (66).
