Social Club Artefact Wednesday - Peter Ollerton's 1976 VSF ID Card
This is one of the cooler artefacts I found, a mid 1970s (1976 to be exact), VSF player ID card/booklet, replete with bad haircut and the mandatory 1970s moustache, which he has since discarded.
Apart from South, Peter Ollerton has played at and coached at a ton of different clubs, mostly in Victoria but also in New South Wales. A member of the Socceroo team that went to the 1974 World Cup (where he made two appearances as a sub), Ollerton's South tenure was relatively brief, but successful at least in its initial phase, being a member of the 1976 championship winning team.
