Ray's footy trivia - the false statement

http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article24893497
ON August 16, 1933, at a meeting of the Southern Country Association Independent Investigation Committee at Gretna, the New Norfolk Football Club was fined five pounds ($450) for failing to send representatives to a  meeting of the committee and for permitting a representative to make a false statement at an earlier meeting.

In a roster match a week or so earlier, a Bothwell player had been reported for striking number 13 of New Norfolk, but New Norfolk representatives had claimed that number 13 guernsey was not worn on that day. Nine witnesses gave evidence that guernsey number 13 had in fact been worn by a New Norfolk player.
