Description

A contemporary newspaper cutting says of the 1900's Oakridge football team :

The Oakridge Club were famous for their knocking-out propensities. This fame was attained not by science but by sheer bull-dogged dash and tenacity. The Club had "a good old John Bull type of supporter in Farmer Oliver Rowles" and mention is made of the fact that the Club seemed "to teem with Gardiners." "F.P. over 6 ft., was in goal;" "F.E. who helped start the Club, was a terribly heavy charger"; "E. was by far the best and oldest" ; "L took things a bit too easy until he is upset" ; and it was hard to better James as hon. secretary. From all this opponents were expected to get used to the hard knocks which Oakridge distributed so lavishly.
