Bill Twomey moved well in

first workout

BILL Twomey, who trained at Collingwood last

night for the first time this season, did not show any signs of the pelvic trouble which had affected him earlier this year.

Twomey said he was looking forward to the practice match on Saturday. He will play at full forward for half that game.

Len Fitzgerald trained stead- ily, and made no mention of going to South Australia, but Pat Twomey did not appear. Twomey is said to have re- ceived an offer to go to Warra-

gul, where Jack Green, former]

player, is the new coach.

Some days ago Twomey men- tioned to officials that he had received some sort of offer, and was told to give them the de- tails. Any suggestion that he might be cleared was laughed at, because he is aged only 20, and has played in only 26


New forward

In view of Collingwood's long search for a _oalkicker, anxious eyes will follow the play of John Finck, who will play full forward in the practice game tomorrow. Finck. who will be matched against Bill Nolan, weighs 12st. 101b., and stands 6ft. in height. He is aged 21, and is a school teacher at Heathmere, near Portland. The match on Sat- urday will be a test both for him and Nolan.

At the other end of the ground on Saturday Jack Pimm and Bill Twomey will share the job of goalkicker, the full back in opposition being Jim Ryan,

of the seconds.

Ken Andrew, who is a nephew of Bruce Andrew, now Commonwealth football director, is shaping well at centre half- back. He is only l8, but has plenty of height and weight.

New boys to train last night were Ralph Lane, a wing man from Frankston, and Robert Harkness, a 6ft. and 14st. fol- lower sent down by Jack Mur- phy, now coach of Cobden.
