Having a fascination for records with our great game it has given me great pleasure to put together these web sites with the help of Bill Ross.

Hopefully all the readers of these web sites get tremendous enjoyment out of them as I do in compiling them and the St Marys Australian Rules Club in Darwin now has on file a history that can if maintained make it a lot easier for who ever continues on with it when the day comes that I no longer can maintain them.
