Note: I found this while researching
searching St Marys records:
Peter is a product of St Marys colts playing
from the mid 60’s until going to Adelaide to complete his schooling. His 199 games include 19 final matches of which
Saints have won 11 with Peter in the team. Other coaches he has played league under include Pat Murphy, Bob Butcher, Jack
Long, Bob Elix and Ian Smith.
Congratulations from all footy followers to
Peter for achieving the 200 game target in his 11th year of senior football.”
The N.T.F.L. only recognises Peter having played
132 games, they consist of 129 games with St Marys and 3 games with Darwin due to cyclone Tracy, I wrote to Peter and received
from him copy of his life membership certificate and an article written in the NT News on Peter being recognised as having
played 200 games.
