Your Say

Brian Newburn says: As a kid in the 50's my favourite player was Bandy Adams......a great Maitland player... (20/09/2011)

steve Doran says: My father Jack Doran marked him in the Grand final in 1951 when he was playing for Northern Suburbs or North Newcastle. Bandy was with Maitland. North won 12 -8. They tell me bandy was fast and elusive, but dad was also extremely quick and got around Bandy to score a try. Newtown chased Jack who was taken down to trial by Herb Narvo. However , Dad declined the offer and stayed in NEWCASTLE TO START Doran Constructions and development company. Steve Doran (20/11/2017)
