Socceroo #184, Ray Baartz, has nominated the Adamstown Rosebuds as his GrassRoots club. Ray sandwich 3yrs at New Lambton Sth SC between stints at Rosebuds, then Man U & Hakoah.
Ray began his Australian career in the 1967 match against a touring Scottish side & went on to be capped 48 times in all scoring 18 times in the process. A career cut well short by injury at the SCG in a magnificent win over Uruguay. I was at the infamous game and our World Cup was poorer for his absence.
Mr. Baartz, it is an honour to have you aboard sir.
