Page 1  CLUB HISTORY
  The following is the story and history of the Kilkenny Football Club as accurate as possible.
  A great deal of the information has been gathered by talking to past players, families, residents
  of the district etc.,
  checking newspapers where ever possible and our own personal experiences of over a period of 17 years.
  Club records have been very hard to find.
  
  HISTORY - CLUB NAMES AND ASSOCIATIONS PLAYED IN
  The history of the club appears to have commenced in the late 1800S and 1990 could have coincided
  with the 100 years of the formation.
  
  The club was originally named 'Carlton Football Club' and in the book history of Woodville 1977
  by Susan Marsden mention is made of the Carlton Club which also shows a photo of the 1906 premiership team
  but unfortunately no names are listed. Photo looks to have been taken in Tarcowie St.
  against the old Norman Memorial Church wall.
  Several of the very old former members of the Kilkenny Football Club have verified that the club was
  originally called Carlton.
  At one stage a part of the Kilkenny suburb was known as Carlton.
  The area was from the Kilkenny Railway Station down the south side of Wilpena Tce. to Myponga Tce.
  and through to Aroona Rd. down the northern side of Aroona Rd. to the railway line.
  At no.38 Wilpena Tce. there was a butcher shop called 'Packers Carlton Meat Store.'
  In Arkaba Rd. which runs parallel to Wilpena Tce. was the Carlton Tennis Club and on the corner of
  Tarcowie St. and Aroona Rd. (n.west corner) was the Kilkenny Wesleyan Church (before it's amalgamation
  with the Beverly Primitive Methodist Church in forming the Elgin Methodist Church in 1901) the address
  was shown as Carlton.
  Packers Butcher Shop was opposite Catherine (Kate) Bryans paddock.
  Kate Bryans house was at 66 David Tce. and she owned the land around Bryan Ave. which runs between
  Tarcowie St. and Myponga Tce. (parallel to David Tce.) was named after her family.
  Original land was owned by Patrick Bryan who appears to be her husband, sold a section of the land
  to the Kilkenny Congregational Church in 1885.
  An article in the Port Adelaide News October 1st 1904 made mention of the Carlton team playing a team
  from Norwood at Adelaide Oval on October 1st 1904.
  The Carlton Football Club name must have changed between 1906-1918. First reference of the name is a
  photo dated 1918 and the new team was called Kilkenny United Football Club and were
  premiers in 1918,1919 & 1920.
  A photo of this era is hanging in the Woodville South Club rooms.
  At the bottom of the photo is the wording..'! Presented to D.Kennedy ESQ"` as a token of esteem
  Mr Kennedy was a local policeman of that time.

Page 2  Prior to being Kilkenny United the club could have also been known as the Kilkenny Troop, as there
  was a result in the sports section of the Sunday Mail June 4th 1916 for a match played on June 3rd 1916
  against the Croydon Troop. The name Troop could have referred to the First Kilkenny Boy Scouts who
  commenced in 1914.
  Scores were Kilkenny - 16.27 Croydon - 2.00. Goalkickers for Kilkenny were T.Trust,Hall,Woods, Jupe,Oaten,
  Clifford,Pengilly and Edwards with Best Players being T.Trust,Oaten,R.Trust,Clifford,Hunt and Halliday.
  
  The two Trust players, Clifford,Pengilly,Edwards are all in the 1918 Kilkenny United photo.
  Just before World War 1 players started wearing numbers on their jumpers.
  The word'United'was dropped from the name between 1928 and 1931 and prior to this period scores for
  1918,1919 mention Kilkenny Rovers but no other reference could be found. Two of the goal kickers listed
  in the match Kilkenny Rovers versus Payneham Rovers on Saturday July 12th 1919 Trust and Pretty also
  appear in the 1918 United photo.
  Newspaper records show that the club played in the general association from at least 1918 to 1920 and
  next reference showed that in 1922 and 1923 they played in the West Torrens Association.
  From 1927 to 1933 the club played in the Port Adelaide Association winning the no.1 division premiership
  in 1932. The scores being Kilkenny - 13.14 Rosatala - 8.13.
  1922 saw the boundry for West Torrens extended to Woodville Rd. and during the 1920,1930 and 1940's
  Kilkenny was the hunting ground for the West Torrens Football Club and over the years the club has
  supplied many league players to both West Torrens and Port Adelaide clubs.
  A meeting at the Russels house in Rowell Cres. in about 1930 was suggested the clubs name be changed to
  Kilkenny Juniors but only reference was an application to Woodville Council to use Princes Square which
  they later cancelled, no other reference could be found.
  1934 was the clubs first season in the Adelaide and suburban association and were premiers that year and
  again in 1939. They got to the final through a protest.
  In the semi-final Saturday August 26th 1939 played at the Albert Druids ground behind the Adelaide Gaol.
  Kilkenny were beaten by Goodwood 5.13 to 4.15 but protested because Goodwood played their 19th man
  before their 18th named player.
  The opposing captain told Art Russel (captain of Kilkenny) that one of his best players had not arrived
  and was going to play his 19th man first (teams only had 19 players in those days) Art said if the player
  arrived and went on the ground after the team was named and if Goodwood wins he would protest and so he did.
  The hearing went before the Adelaide Suburban Association who threw the case out.
  Mr.Tom O'Reilly the Kilkenny Chairman then went to the Junior Union League who also threw it out.
  They then appealed to the South Australian National League Chairman Mr.T.S.O'Halloran who upheld the
  protest and the match was given to Kilkenny.
  All this took place in one week.
  Kilkenny then went on and won the premiership.
Page 3
  The 1939 Premiership Dinner was held on October 31st at the Buffalo Hall.
  Art Russel arrived in his army uniform received his trophy for Best and Fairest and then left for World War 2.
  Art was one of the first men from Kilkenny to enlist in the war.
  A write up of this protest can be found in the Advertiser dated August 30th 1939 page 12 and September
  1st 1939 page 16.
  They stayed in that association until 1940 and because of the second world war and the shortage of players
  went into recess in seasons 1941 and 1942.
  In 1943 young Jim (Gummy) Edwards,Bill Eden and his brother Ray commenced the club again with Ray being
  the secretary-treasurer. Unfortunately Ray died suddenly in 1944 and Bill took over as secretary-treasurer
  a position he held until 1957.
  Ray's funeral was one of the largest seen in Kilkenny at that time and all the Kilkenny Footballers marched
  behind the funeral procession to the Cheltenham Cemetery.
  Because of shortage of players at this time several teams in the district didn't form and these players
  transferred to the Kilkenny Club and the following list was supplied to me by Bill McManus.

  Other players to join were Bill Edgewood,Colin Hill,Len Hill,Toddy, Allan Blight,Allan (Pluto) Peters,
  Ken Matthews,Tom Nicholls and Max Bamford who came from Simpsons with Jim Edwards.
  Coaches at that time could have been Jack Sibley (who had the shop opposite Princess Square)
  Reg Cunningham,Bob Henderson and Bill Edgewood.
  In 1943 they afflilated with the Adelaide and Suburban Association again until 1946 when they were
  beaten in the grand final by Flinders Park with the score being Flinders Park - 11.08 Kilkenny - 10.08
  with the game being played at Alberton Oval on September 14th 1946.
Page 4
  Mr George Guymer a prominent Kilkenny identity and business man promised each player 2.0.0 pund ($4.00)
  if they won the grand final. Unfortunately they lost but he still gave them 1.0.0 pound ($2.00).
  Cliff Turner kicked the winning goal for Flinders Park in the last minutes of the game.
  1947 found the club switching back to the West Torrens District League and the teams were entered.
  One in the Gold Division and the other in Blue Division.
  They stayed in this association until 1952 when the club struggled to field one team only.
  After six seasons in the West Torrens Association another move was made in 1953 to the new Metropolitan
  Association where they stayed until 1956. During this period they were premiers in 1955 and again in 1956
  when the club went through the season undefeated.
  In 1957 West Torrens Association accepted Kilkenny back and this association functioned until 1960 when
  the West Torrens Association disbanded. A new association was formed in 1961 known as Western District
  Football League which comprised patronage from the following league clubs, West Torrens Football Club,
  Woodville Football Club and Port Adelaide Football Club and Kilkenny played in this association.
  Due to lack of support from junior clubs in these areas the association folded after the initial season.
  During the history of the West Torrens District League only two Kilkenny players achieved 'Life Membership'
  of this association M.McDonald and G.Chinca.
  At the end of 1961 Doug French and Gino Chinca attended a meeting at Unley Oval in the view of Kilkenny
  joining the Sturt District Football League, but after a long discussion with the Kilkenny Committee it was
  moved that the club approach the Glenelg, South West District Football Association, which was done and the
  club was accepted in 1962.
  Kilkenny competed in this association until 1969 when the name of the association changed to Glenelg and
  South Adelaide District Football Association.
  1964 saw the club field two teams again this being the first time since 1951 that the club was able to
  attract more players.
  In 1966 the club were Premiers in the A2 grade.
  The clubs last game in season 1970 played at home at Ledger Reserve as the Kilkenny Football Club was
  against Torrensville United but no scores could be found.
  1971 saw the name of the club changed to what is now known as Woodville South with the club still
  maintaining the colours of red and white, but nobody knows how the colours originated and the
  Woodville South Club are still known as 'The Cats'. Over the years the Kilkenny Club were very
  colorful with the way they existed. They existed by pleasant Sunday mornings held at various members homes.
  One week the morning would be held one side of the Port Road and the next Sunday the other side.
  Advertising would be by word of mouth.
  Three locations were used in Williams Street, Knaggs,Jordan and Meeks.
  In later years uptill 1966 majority of the Sunday mornings would be held at Jim Savages Foundry in Pope Street.
Page 5
  These were the days before the club had their own club rooms and liquor licence.
  Houses used on other side of Port Road were in Castle Street (Peters) and Mundulla Street (Rayners) other
  houses were used but not to this extent. When the mornings were held at two of the houses, the Peters and
  the Jordans the wives or the mothers would make pasties to sell to the members. Most of the mornings would
  go until approx. 1.30pm and those members that were single would go on to other football shows.
  In the mid 1950's there was a very strong Sunday afternoon football league and a few would go to these matches.
  Games would of played regularily at Hansen Reserve and that would be where some would head for.
  The reason the club went to private homes on the Sunday mornings was because on at least two occasions the
  change rooms at Princes Square were raided by the police with the clubs chairman and secretary of the time
  being fined.
  These Sunday mornings would only be run during the football season and the ritual would be who ever had a
  car or station wagon would have to go to the Ice Works on Torrens Road opposite Aroona Road and pick up the
  keg or kegs from there. The keg(s) would be ordered early in the week from the Halfway Hotel who would
  deliver to the Ice Works for chilling. The Hotel would supply the co2 gas but the club had their own
  equipment and glasses.
  At one stage price of the beer to the members would be 10 for 10/-($1.00) and they would then be issued
  a ticket for ten drinks and every time a drink was issued the ticket would be punched. If the ticket was
  not finished that morning it was transferable to another Sunday.
  During the course of the morning a weekly mini tatts was held and profits would be between 30.0.0 - 40.0.0
  ($60-80).
  During the 1940's - 1950's the older ladies of the club Mrs. Eden and Mrs.Peters would knit the players
  jumpers plus they would wash them by hand.
  Players that played during 1950 and mid 1960 had to pay a weekly fee to play, commencing at 6a (5G)
  gradually increasing to 3/-(30) over the years. This money paid for the umpire plus covered insurance
  payments because there was no private health cover or medicine benefits available.
  At all home games a committee member would take a donation tin around the oval and would collect donations
  from spectators from both teams.
  In the early days the club could not afford a bell to start or finish a quarter of football and they
  would bang on a four gallon kerosene tin for the noise to alert the umpire.
  Before a match would be commenced the umpire would line up the two teams and would check to see if their
  spriggs were okay and that no tacks would be sticking out of the leather spriggs plus make sure the players
  didn't wear any rings.
  As Kilkenny was an Amateur Football Team they relied on local business and local identities to help with
  financial support. This usually came at the beginning of the season and at the end of a season where players
  would be presented with trophies for various feats during the season. Some trophies that come to mind were
  toasters, card tables,pen sets,electric razors,mixmasters,pewter mugs and of course kitbags.
Page 6
  As the club consisted of working class people credit was often given to members and I don't know if there
  was any person who failed to pay up what he had borrowed or received credit for.
  Mention must also be made that the first 60-70 years of the clubs history players actually lived and
  worked in the Kilkenny and near by areas. A lot of players played in ordinary boots as football boots with
  spriggs were a luxury item. It wasn't until about the late 1940's the majority of players had actual football
  boots. Another item which players use to take pride in is their kitbags. They would be made of genuine
  leather and would last for years and years. Certainly different to the ones used these modern days.
  During this period of time training would commence three to four weeks before the season commenced and the
  players usually kept fit by riding their bikes everywhere. Push bikes were another prize possession owned
  by the players. When the club played their away games, players and officials would meet in front of Frank
  Halls Library/Barber Shop 25 Kilkenny Rd. or next door in front of the Billiard Saloon which was at number 25A.
  Those players that owned motor cars would transport the players to the various games and at times would carry
  more passengers than were allowed by law. This practise of meeting on Kilkenny Rd. for away games lasted
  until the mid 1960's.
  After each football match was played uptill the end of 1965 players would meet back at the Halfway Hotel
  for a drink and discuss their game and in those days the Hotel would be packed because the Hotels
  closed at 6.00pm.
  One of the traditions of the club that went on for a number of years was the 'Pie and Pastie' night held
  on the last night of practise before the first game of a new season. The club would supply pies and pasties
  plus a few beers for free. If the club was finiancial enough they would put on a football film plus a talk
  by old ex-league players.
  Another long tradition was that each player that played at least three games received a pair of football socks
  and was given an end of season trip with all travelling and accomondation expenses being paid by the club.
  The player also had to raise a certain amount of money to be eligible for the trips. These trips were held
  on the long weekend in October. Further mention of these trips will be mentioned later in this history.
GROUNDS
  Carlton/Kilkenny have had several home grounds with the first being Princes Square Pope Street Beverly,
  where they could have played in the late 1800's to approximately 1926.
  Conditions of the use of the oval was that no bad language nor misbehaviour shall be caused by the members.
  From the mid 1920's until approximately 1935 the club played at Catherine (Kate) Bryans Paddock.
  (The original land being owned by Patrick Bryan her Husband).
  This ground which was situated between Rosie St. (changed to Tarcowie St. in 1952) and Myponga Tce.
  bounded by Wilpena and David Tce. to the west. Kate Bryans original home is still at no.66 David Tce.  
  although in early Sands and McDougalls Directories it is shown as no.62.

Page 7
  Kilkenny street numbering changed in 1952.
  It was a very large oval and one day the club come to play a match and somebody had laid a house foundation down.
  There was still room to play football on-the side.
  This ground was also popular for travelling circuses and a long time resident of Kilkenny, Kath Parker (nee Perry)
  who lives on the corner of Wilpena and Myponga Tce. quoted about finding old pennies when digging the garden
  when her house was first built. The reason the club switched from Princes Square early in the 1930 was because
  the club could not afford to pay the hire fee which was about 4/6 (45).
  T.F.Blythmann secretary of Kilkenny Football Club in 1932 quoted KateBryans was a very good oval and it would be
  lined with spectators all the way round`.
  Also quoted by Jim Edwards Jnr. 'players leaving the ground were often hit by opposition players who pulled up
  tuffs of grass and dirt clumps which they threw at them'.
  Before the start of a game local identity Jim Tester would go over the ground and pick up stones, pebbles etc.
  so the playing surface wasn't too rough. Also other members would drag tyres over the surface to try and pick
  up the 'three corner jacks, players would also spend hours picking out the 'three corner jacks' out of their
  clothes after the match.
  Claude Stephens who lived at 23 Yallum Tce. and who's back yard faced Bryans Paddock lent his shed so that the
  players could use it as a change room. Claude was the local representative for Bushells products and later
  worked at Shearers also Rudi Stott who's son also played for Kilkenny lived on David Tce. and his shed was also
  used as change rooms for one season.
  From Kate Bryans the club tranferred to Hansen Paddocks on Hansen Rd. Kilkenny (now known as Hansen Rd. Reserve)
  which they shared with the Kilkenny Cycling Club. They only played there for approximately five seasons.
  Members of the football club that come to mind Perce Beare, Tom and Bill Blythman and Ted McLoughlin were original
  members of the cycling club and in 1932 Tom Blythman was secretary of the football club. 
  Then it was back to Princes Square until 1954 when the Woodville Council sold the oval to Pope Products.
  There was a lot of controversies concerning the sell out, plus protest meetings but the council stood firm.
  Mr.W.A.Hoskin was Mayor at the time. First reference can be found in the Woodville Times Friday July 30th 1954
  and continues in until February 11th 1955.
  Mr.Hutchens member for Hindmarsh asked in Parliment in June 1955 three questions regarding Princes Square to
  the Premier Mr.Tom Playford.
  
  1. Who paid the land tax for the five years prior to 1965.
  2. What was the amount.
  3. When the property transferred.
  
  In a report by the Commissioner of land tax in reply to Mr. Hutchens questions (Woodville Times June 24th 1955).
  He reports that Princes Square is entered in the assessment book of the department as a public reserve and as
  far as it is known by the land
Page 8
  tax department has always been so defined and is therefore exempted from tax. The land was tranferred from
  John Riggs to Edward Stephens in 1849 and trustees of Edward Stephens to William Thomas Foster in 1875.
  Pope Products were the winners in the exchange because they received five acres of prime land valued at
  the time 115,000($30,000) while the council had to settle for approx.seven acres valued at 7,000($14,000).
  Princes Square had no electricity and lighting was supplied with tilley lanterns, showers were lit with an
  old 'chip' heater which had to be lit about 30 minutes before they could be used plus they had to be
  continually filled with wood pieces. Some players used to bring their own wood for the heaters.
  Princes Square was the playing ground for many other local sports groups whether the neighbourhood boys
  or organised teams. The ground was very rough but there was no other choice.
  In 1955 the Woodville Council leased the Ledger Rd. Reserve to the Kilkenny Club after purchasing the land
  from the war service home division. The club played there until 1971 when the club became Woodville South.
  The original pipes used on the new oval were donated by Sir Barton Pope of Pope Products and the water used
  came from a bore at Hill's Dairy on Ledger Rd. which was several hundred yards north of the new oval.
  The first game played on this ground was against Brighton on May 14th 1955 with Kilkenny winning 11.13 - 3.7.
  The first losing game was against Edwardstown on May 21st 1955 and the scores were Edwardstown 9.13
  Kilkenny 9.8.
  The new brick building clubrooms were built in 1966 at a cost of $10,328.30 by the Seaview building co.
  Previously the change rooms consisted of a galvanised shed situated on the opposite side of the ground with
  the cement floor being put down by players, members and committee men who volunteered their free time.
  This shed was more modern than Princes Square because electricity was connected.
  Since the original building built in 1966 additions have been made by the Woodville South Club.
  In 1967 the Kilkenny Football club applied to the licencing court for a liquor licence which was granted
  and this put an end to the use of private homes for the Sunday mornings.
  Kilkenny was one of the earliest junior clubs to have been granted a liquor licence.
  MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE
  
  The committee would be elected at the annual general meeting which would be held in about February of each
  year and the meetings were generally held at the Buffalo Hall in Arkaba Rd. Kilkenny.
  Claude Stephens who was mentioned earlier in the history was caretaker and handled the bookings.
  The committee comprised chairman,secretary,assistant secretary, treasurer,deputy chairman and six other
  members elected at the A.G.M. All positions were of a honorary capacity. Each person nominated must be
  finiancial in every way from the previous season and could only be nominated by a financial member, prior
  to 1957, the position of secretary was combined with the treasurers duty.
  Committee meetings were usually held on a Tuesday night once a fortnight,
Page 9
  for the first part of the season then revert to once a month.
  These meetings over the years were held at private houses prior to 1966 meetings were held at Peter's in
  Castle Street West Croydon, Calberts Aroona Road West Croydon, Fawcetts Main Street Beverley, Jordan William,
  William Street Beverley and Savages corner of Pope and Peglar Streets Beverley.
  LIFE MEMBERSHIP
  
  This was bestowed on players or members who have given outstanding services to the club.
  To qualify a player had to play 100 games or a member 10 years service to the club.
  A person had to be recommended by the management committee and elected by a three fourths majority of
  those members present at the annual general meeting. If a member was made a life member they would be
  presented with a certificate at the annual dinner and presentation night usually held in October.
   The inscription on the certificate reads:-
   We live in deeds,not years,in thoughts,not breaths,
   In feelings,not in figures on a dial,
   We should count time by heart throbs,he most lives,
   Who thinks most,feel the noblest acts the best.
  The words are from festus a blank verse epic based on the faust legend was written by Philip James Bailey,
  and published in 1839.
  Progressively enlarged editions appeared throughout his life time and by the time the last edition was
  published in 1889 Festus had swollen to 52 scenes and 40,000 lines.
  The verse quoted is noted on page 60 10th edition until 1957 there was no restrictions as to how many
  life members be appointed per year and on February 20th 1959 the constitution of the club was altered so
  that no more than 2 members were bestowed in 1 season. Records show that the clubs first life members
  were Harold Blight,A.Burford and D.Watson and they were made life members in 1938.
  Records show from 1938 to 1967 there were 50 people given life membership of the Kilkenny Football Club.
  Life membership meant that the person no longer had to pay club subscriptions.
  CONSTITUTION
  
  The Kilkenny Football Club had a constitution which they adhered to and these rules gave the set up of the club.
  It explains the duties of the officers, committee proceedures, what committees were needed, the appointment
  of a coach and players representative, special meetings, the proceedure for honorariums subscriptions and
  match fees and many other rules and conditions.
  SOCIAL FUNCTIONS
  Up till the end of 1950 social functions and annual meetings were conducted at the Buffalo Hall and over
  the years the "high light" being the annual dinner and presentation nights which were always held after the
  end of season trips.
  The ladies of the club would come to the fore and do the catering.
  At one cabaret held in the mid 1950's (these were usually held once per month at the Buffalo Hall).
  The police walked in to check the liquor licence (which the club forgot to get on a few occasions).
Page 10
  While they were checking and asking questions the keg was rolled out the back door under the police noses
  to the house opposite the hall and when they got out to the kitchen the police could not find any evidence
  present, so no charges could be laid.
  These monthly social functions were a time when the young players learnt to dance.
  If they sat too long the older ladies would get them up for a dance and teach them the various steps,
  great fun was had by all.
  In later years the club had monster cabarets which they held once a year and at this function they would have
  a large cash raffle as a draw card. Some of the places used was the Goodwood Hotel, West Croydon/Kilkenny
  R.S.L.Hall, the Maltese Hall Hilton, the Motor Cycle Hall Woodville Gardens and the Lockleys R.S.L.Hall.
  Another fund raiser which was held over a number of years and helped to bring in funds was the raffle held
  at the Halfway Hotel (during the football season) on Friday nights and Saturday mornings and normally sold
  by Clarrie Calbert and Bill Lowry. Tickets were 3 for 2/-(204) prizes being 1st leg of ham, 2nd bottle of
  whiskey and 3rd one pound of bacon, with the winners drawn on a Saturday morning.
  Tickets would be completely sold out.
  CLUB TRIPS
 
  Another highlight of the club was the end of season trips. Members would have to work hard to participate
  in these trips. Over the years some of the places visited were Broken Hill,Port Pirie, Burra,Ballarat,
  Horsham, geelong,Melbourne and St. Kilda in Victoria, When the club travelled ny train a special concession
  rate was given as it was booked and classed as an educational trip. This was organised by the long serving
  chairman Clarrie Calbert and who worked for the South Australian Railways. Other methods of travel was by bus.
  Matches were only played against Broken Hill on these occasions and in 1946 Kilkenny defeated Broken Hill
  with Ken Obst winning the Best on Ground trophy. In 1948 at the Broken Hill Jubilee Oval the Broken Hill
  team thrashed Kilkenny.
  Each trip to Ballarat the senior members of the club would go to the Ballarat orphanage and make a
  presentation and a donation which the children enjoyed. Also the club would be entertained by the Ballarat
  Football Club.
  In March 1960 5 members of the Kilkenny Football Club Messrs C.Calbert (chairman), G.Chinca (secretary)
  and committee men V.Cook, J.Savage and G.Howard presented the Geelong Football Club plaque with a mirror
  bsckground featuring 2 cats shaking hands. This presentation was to repay Geelong for kindness in
  entertaining Kilkenny in past years on their trips. The gift was going to be hung in a prominent place in
  the new hall at Kardina Park.
  Great fun was had on these trips and a lot of stories could be told and listed are a few that come to hand
  and not necessary in year order.
   1. On going on one trip a Kilkenny local boasted about the size of his case he was taking because he
   had 53 articles in it, a pack of cards and a toothbrush (which he didn't use).
   
   2. The same member liked a drink and after a trip to Geelong he was known as Guy Fawkes.
   This was because he fell asleep with a cigarette alight and set fire to his mattress in the hotel room.
Page 11
  
   3. On another particular trip this time to Ballarat when the club was due to leave late on a Monday
   afternoon the manager of one of the hotels the club was staying at complained there was a lot of
   cutlery and silverware missing and if it was not forthcoming the club would not be catching the
   Melbourne express back to Adelaide. After a quick whip round the goods were found with the culprit
   and the club was then able to catch the train.
   4. Another time 2 members of the K.F.0 went to Horsham to pay a cash deposit for the forth coming
   trip but due to a misunderstanding the money was left in the kitbag which was left in the back of a
   farmers utility. The money spent the whole afternoon touring Horsham and it was not until the evening
   that the 2 members caught up with the farmer and the kitbag still intact in the back of the ute.
 
   5. On a trip to Melbourne a member Perc Knaggs tried to hypnotise an elephant up the stairs of
   Carlyons Hotel which at that time was the leading Hotel in Melbourne, but unfortunately the elephant
   would not obey. The elephant was from near by Worths Circus.
   6. Also on another trip to Melbourne the club stayed at another leading Hotel where there were pigeons
   in the rafters of the roof. On this particular Saturday night the younger members were able to catch a
   few and tie tags with slogans on their feet. These pigeons were then put in the lift and the doors shut.
   When the doors open youn can guess the result. Once again we the committee were called before the
   management. The following night a member of the Riverside Football Club tried the same tatic but
   unfortunately he fell through the skylight ceiling and was killed.
   
   7. On these trips the club would take up to 50 members and include a couple of vice-presidents. On
   this particular trip to Geelong a former captain/coach walked into a barber shop and said that he
   wanted a hair cut. When he was told to take a seat he then presented his own hair dresser who then
   proceeded to use the shops equipment and gave the Kilkenny member a hair cut. The barber from Kilkenny
   had his own business and was a vice _president of the club.
   8. Another story could be told about the trips was this particular trip the club was going away on a bus.
   The bus was about to pull away about 6.30pm on the Friday night when the Halfway Hotel closed and
   everybody realised that there was no toilet on the bus. A quick look around found a metal bucket
   behind the Bank of Adelaide on the corner of Port and Kilkenny ° roads and this was used as a make
   shift toilet on the bus. Quite a few stops had to be made along the way to empty the bucket.
   The bucket was returned a bit smelly to the bank on Tuesday morning.
   Where ever the club went on their trips they were well entertained by the local clubs and members.
   Going on these trips has been fun, educational and have had their funny moments.
   It was always funny seeing the younger married players (not all of them)being farewelled by their
   wives at one end and then being farewelled by girls at the departure where we had been visiting and
   then being met by their wives on our return to Adelaide.

   STORIES OF INCIDENTS
Many individual stories can be told about incidents that have happened on and off the playing field and the following are a few examples and again they are not in any year sequence.
1. When the club played College Park for the first time back in season 1955. Both teams had to change in a horse stable with horses. There were harnesses, horse collars and straw all over the barn. This ground was situated adjacent to the St.Peters College northern end. Also next to this oval that Kilkenny were playing on was another game in progress and the players from the college were wearing three figure numbers.
2. In a match against Hindmarsh played at the Hindmarsh Oval Ray Mathews went to grab a Hindmarsh player around the waist but instead grabbed him by his athletic support. The opposing player stopped swung Ray around while he was still holding his support causing Ray to tear the ligaments in his knee..
3. Then there was the time Big Bob (Moose) Miller was warming up before a game against Lockleys at Lockleys Oval, when he slipped fell over and broke his collarbone and could not take his place in the team.
4. Talking about self inflicted injuries there was a Kilkenny player who was running along the boundry chasing the ball when he tripped over the first aid box which was stationed inside the boundry. He finished up with a nasty injury. This accident happened at Ledger Reserve.
5. In a game against Plympton it had rained that heavy the whole afternoon that the whole Plympton Oval was covered by water. Ron Sheehan picked up the ball went for a run and a bounce but the ball stopped dead and didn't move. The look on Ron's face told story.
6. In 1961 in a game against Woodville North played at Ledger Reserve Kilkenny were winning easily and the captain/coach of Woodville North was having a go at his players and in particular his brother for not trying. The captain told his brother he would hit him if he didn't play better so the brother said 'Go on hit me' and the captain did by knocking him out.
7. During the late 1950's and early 1960's the club found it hard to field a team of 20 players at times and occasionally the club played unregistered players although they registered a 'Bill Buck' who didn't exsist. It was amazing at a medal count at the end of the season when Bill Buck received 3 votes for a Best on Ground performance and nobody could remember who he was for that match.
8. Fred (Wagga) Burton an old Kilkenny player told the story that when he was in the services during World War 2 he played football in Victoria. The first time he played and went for the ball he was hit from behind, when he came to the legendary Jack Dyer was standing over him and his comment was 'When you are playing football in Victoria you keep one eye on the ball and the other looking around you'.
9. In 1955 Kilkenny had a prominent jockey playing for them. He would compete in the first two races of the day and then turn up to play for Kilkenny. This particular Saturday afternoon towards the end of the season he was reported for an incident but didn't front up to the tribunal. Consequently he didn't play again.
   
Page 13
10. Kilkenny Football Club at one stage shared the Ledger Reserve with the Allenby Gardens Methodist Church Football Team and at a meeting of the two clubs to discuss watering the oval as it had been a dry winter. The Allenby Gardens Team could only afford divine intervention as they claimed they weren't very finiancial.
11. In a game against Brompton at Brompton's ground at Renown Park the oval had to be cleared of horses before the game could commence, apparently they would let the horses graze on the ground during the week.
12. Then there was the player who complained that his hair got messed up when he played, which affected his appearance. The following week was his 21st birthday and he was presented with a parcel which contained a comb with several teeth missing and a mirror after this he didn't complain any more.
13. In another game played at Ledger Reserve a Kilkenny player was going around hitting the smaller players from the opposition team. When he was confronted by the big ruckman from the other team who told him he was going to get him after the game. The Kilkenny player took off across the ground for his life as soon as the final bell went, leaving his clothes behind in the change shed.
14. In a game against Marion at the Marion Oval a Kilkenny player who was out injured and was getting rough treatment from a Marion player. He could only stand a certain amount when he finally had had enough, so he jumped the boundry fence hitting the culprit. It took a while for play to resume again, nothing could be proved that he was a Kilkenny player or supporter.
15. Lockleys had a goal umpire who was in the habit of cheating especially when his son was playing full foward. This particular Saturday afternoon the father happened to mention to the Kilkenny full back that his son had a large boil on his neck and to go easy on him. The first time the ball came down the Lockleys end the two players clashed with the result being the Lockleys player getting a wack on the back of the neck. the site of his neck wasn't very pleasant. It was just desserts as the father the previous season had signalled a point for Kilkenny instead it should have been a goal resulting in Kilkenny losing by 3 points.
16. The club had a trainer who seemed to enjoy a drink or two of port on cold and wet days of a game it wasn't unusual for him to supply the players with a nip of port at half time and three quarter time. What the players didn't finish the trainer certainly made sure work of it and he would try to ride his bike home afterwards.
17. In matches when the club was kicking with the wind and when there was a gale blowing the club would make sure there was someone at the end to retreive the ball but when the opposition kicked with the wind nobody was there. In those days there wasn't any time on.
18. At a junior game at Ledger Reserve there was a player that played for Kilkenny, who was bigger than the umpire. The umpire made several mistakes and this big player picked the umpire up and told him to get his game in order. From then on the umpire was afraid to make a decision.
Page 14
As can be seen by the stories listed the K.F.0 has had a lot of character and characters. Many, many more stories can be told by individuals and to close off a lot of players and members were given 'nicknames' for one reason or another and a separate referrence is made to those names that come to memory but there maybe a few forgotten.

Iti July l"ttill. a teats li-(ut \V"oo<l,ille l)laseci Adelaide vu the North Parklands (Adelaidie vNoll) . but according to Joseph Bower—a member—the \Voodville Football Club was first foriiictl in 1875. In April, 1875, the .l(lverliser reported the club's "first color match on the grounds of Mrs. Terrell at Woodville. The weather was very windy, nevertheless some splendid kicks were trade". "l here is no mention of their opponents, but "the Concordia Band discoursed appropriate music*'. In 1876 the club challenged any other club around Adelaide, "to play a game of football according to the Old Adelaide Rules, which Rules will be played by the above Club in future'. Ships' officers of Port Adelaide took tip the challenge
and other newly formed clubs such as Port Adelaide, Adelaide and Gawler. Together with /Woodville these were among the original members of the South Australian Football Association. formed in 1377,12
But it was hardly Australian Rules' The number of players to a side varied from 15 to 20 (it wasn't until 1899 that the Victorian Association made the rule 18 men a side) , At one match, after defeating Gawler, the Woodville team then took on 30 spectators: at a Port Adelaide match at Glanville. "after the game had been kept up for au i hour without either side scoring a goal. ends s'ere changed with no better result'.
And it was a short life for the Woodville team, which disbanded in 1878. Most of the players, including Joseph Bower, transferred to the new Norwood Football Club. But there is mention of several other local teams, among them the Woodville Catholics" and the Carlton Club, both of which were still in existence in the early 1900's.
area. "There were several other local teams, i^tcluding the Carlton Club, the Woodville Park Cricket Club and the Woodville Methodists—which all played on Princes Square, in Beverley.'
Princes Square was the playing ground for malty other local sports groups, whether the neighbourhood boys or organised teams. Woodville Council allowed use of the square provided '\o bad language nor misbehaviour shall be caused by the members". The ground was very rough, but the choice then was between Princes Square or the paddocks. Old residents also describe a sporting area at the site of the present Mareeba Hospital, and "Woodville Catholics had a very good football team and played on the Kilkenny sicje_of Pai-L Street on Bryan's Paddocks".*
Princes Square was set aside as a recreation area when the township was first laid out, a practice which had not been adopted elsewhere. Two other squares at Beverley had already been lost to industry—as Princes Square itself would be. The earlier squares had been bought by J. T. Headdey, in 1884. Yet a few years later, in 1889, residents of Woodville proper were so concerned at the lack of recreation areas that they held a public meeting about the matter. For the time being nothing came of it. The paddocks would have to do.

Saturday  August 26th  Goodwood 5.13 - Kilkenny 4.15 (A2 Division Grandfinal)
Saturday  Sept.2nd Kilkennv 14.8 - Sturt 6.7_, Played at Albert Druids Ground
    behind the Adelaide Gaol N.W Park_lands, Junction Port & North railway lines.
    Kilkenny were beaten in the semi final but protested because Goodwood played
    their 19th man before the 18 players selected.
    The opposing captain told Art Russel (captain of Kilkenny) that his best player
    hadn't arrived and was going to play his 19th man.
    Art said that if the player arrived and went on the ground and if Goodwood win
    he would protest and so he did.
    The hearing went before the Adelaide and Suburban Association committee who threw
    the case out.
    They then went to the Junior Union League who also threw it out.
    They appealed to the S.A National Football League chairman Mr T.S.O'Halloran who
    upheld the protest and the match was awarded to Kilkenny.
    Mr Tom O'Reilly the Kilkenny chairman was the man that instigated the proceedings
    which only took a week to finalise. A write up of the case can be found in
    'The Advertiser' 30th August 1939 page 12 and 1st September 1939 page 16.
    (The mention of the case is in the front of the history of K.F.C.) The dinner of
    the 1939 premiership was held in October at the Buffalo Hall.
    Art Russel arrived in his army uniform to receive his trophy for Best & Fairest
    and then he left for World War 2.
    Art was one of the first men from Kilkenny to enlist.

 THREE POINT WIN
 BREAKS HOODOO. 
 Breaking a consistent run of outs Kilkenny footballers got on top
 of their hoodoo to defeating College Park by three points on Saturday.
 College Park who are in second position on the premiership table were regarded as a serious obstacle.
 Kilkenny applied pressure from the first bounce and their team play and accurate kicking paid dividends.
 College Park had more opportunities than the local lads but failed dismally in turning them to
 use. From twenty six effective shots they could manage only 9.17. Kilkenny scored 11.8.
 Best players honors among a team of good'uns were awarded to Bill Mc Lean at centre half-back
 and Norris Jaekel at fullback.
 Woodville Times Friday 6th August 1954
 UMPIRES AIDED OLDTIMERS
 Kilkenny Past & Present footballers tried conclusive at Hahndorf Oval last week.
 The old timers had a clear cut victory, but says Bernie Jordan with the assistance of umpire Collins.
 Any excuses is better than none but the way 'Poppa' Blight coolly turned back the Present drive and the
 manner in which Tom Hosking kicked goals, and Tom Holland barred the goal mouth from the 'younger set'
 had more than a little to do with their victory.
 Vern Cook was well on top and in spite of suggestions that 'Skinny' Smith, 'Tubby' Skipworth and 'Fatty' Bugg
 should swap diets they were good enough to get in among the best players.
 Gino Chinca and Bill Hewitt were easily best for the vanquished.
