DIAMOND VALLEY FINAL Eltham Lose Match By 4 Points POOR UMPIRING PERMITS MANY INCIDENTS [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 26 July 1940
DIAMOND VALLEY FINAL Eltham Lose Match By 4 Points POOR UMPIRING PERMITS MANY INCIDENTS AFTER Eltham had turned a deficit of 3 goals into a lead during the last term, Greensborough came with a rattle to score a narrow win in the last seconds of play. In the early stages the game was of good standard, but after half time the umpire allowed players too much latitude, and as a result the play became ragged. Greensborough showed a slight superiority in the air and were better equipped in the ruck, but in the open ex .changes Eltham revealed better teamwork. By their win, Greensborough will now contest the grand final with Epping at Greensborough to-morrow. As the difference on. the last meeting was only 8 points, the grand final should provide spectators with a keen, thrilling contest, the result of which would be difficult to forecast.
