Social Club Artefact Wednesday - Peter Ollerton's 1976 VSF ID Card

Former South and Socceroos striker Peter Ollerton is due to turn 63 next Tuesday, so it was as good as time as any to put this up. (you could make an argument about doing it next Wednesday, but we have something else in mind for that).

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.

While I like people commenting on the blog, it would be useful if different posters could at least leave some sort of nickname to make it easier to sort through all the different 'anonymous' posters. If your post doesn't get approved straight away, it's probably because I haven't seen it yet. Lastly, just because I approve a comment for publication does not mean that I endorse its content.
