It was a warm sunny September Saturday at Royal Park only grass field for the Women’s B Grade grand final in 1970. Coach Graeme Pearson and the squad of 13 took to the field, the opposition is not known or the score at this time, however this team were Runner Up Premiers. You can see rolling hills and cars of the 60’s/70’s in the back ground in the parkville surrounds. Piggy tails were the obvious fashion of the time with the hand sewn FHC verticle striped dresses.
