About the Author

Rex Nixon (ex POSN)

I was born in Adelaide in 1947 and at a young age took a liking to our great game following Glenelg.

At Seventeen I joined the Royal Australian Navy in January 1965 and because of Glenelg’s colours I followed my beloved Richmond. After 20 years and many postings around Australia and 20 months in Papua New Guinea I was discharged and settled in Perth in 1985 after one wet season in 1984/85 here in Darwin.

My reason I did not stay longer back then was because I could only get a temporary job after my discharge from the Navy, but I vowed back then that I would one day return to Darwin to live.

Normally I would have followed the Tigers, but due to a chance meeting (because of having a video copy of the undefeated champions of the 1984/85 season) and quick thinking by Allan Breed asking me would I like to become a member, that the rest is now history that I support such a great club with a great past history.

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

I think everyone would agree that Australian Rules Football has made a very considerable impact on the development of the social and community life of Darwin especially since the telecasts of the V.F.L./A.F.L.

It is amazing that only one small publication exist on the most successful club in Australia the St Marys Football Club in Darwin or fondly known to their loyal band of supporters as "The Green Machine".

I like many fully realise that through my own football experiences of some fifty eight years through rain, mud, and fine weather that times, attitudes, standards and so on have changed markedly and will continue to change.

Never the less the St Marys Football Club is and has always been the "Family Club" and I must say how much I admire those who give so freely and generously of their time without any of the accolades.

I like many condemn, in the strongest possible terms, any of those clubs that do under the counter deals as no club in Darwin can support this and it is with great pleasure that the St Marys Football Club has shown how you can succeed for the love of the club by strongly supporting these ideals.

My proudest moment since joining St Marys in 1995 was when out of the blue it came as a thrill to me at the 2005/06 AGM that I was told I had been awarded Honoury Life Membership of this great club and in doing so had become only the 41st person to have this honour awarded to them in the clubs 54 year history to that time.

Doing this web site has been a monumental task and I would like to acknowledge all those who contributed to it, but one person I must acknowledge is Mike Barfoot from the NTFL for all the help and all the information that he has supplied to me because without his help very little would have been possible.

Acknowledgment also must go to Ted Egan AO, Bill Ross, the late Mrs Sheila Clarke and the late Terry Lew Fatt in helping me to identify the players in the old photographs and supplying information to me.

Hopefully all the readers of this web site get tremendous enjoyment out of it as I do in compiling it and the St Marys Australian Rules Club 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 it.

THE PRICE OF VICTORY IS DEDICATION.

I often wonder in football clubs if the supporters think of the persons working inconvenient hours, unpaid, to satisfy the keen appetites of sometime impatient players and supporters. Also do we consider the time and energy devoted by trainers, team managers, timekeepers and a host of other Officials, and the organizers of such necessities as meat trays, raffles, pie nights etc?

Do we ever reflect upon the courage of the players who week after week, after hours of arduous training, risk to body and limb in order to bring us enjoyment and glory to the jumper they wear.

Selflessness, Devotion, Contribution, and Courage, if you put them all together, then you have the major part for dedication.

This is essential for any successful organization for without it, little can ever be achieved.

St Marys Football Club has been fortunate in always having possessed more than our fair share of this.

However, to remember that PAST GLORIES cannot always come to the aid of FUTURE ENDEAVOURS, and that our efforts must NEVER wane, but maintain, at the VERY LEAST, the present STANDARD of EXCELLENCE.
