#ThrowbackThursday is back with a bang for 2021! Introducing one of Adamstowns finest and most determined forwards- Gavin ‘Massa’ Russell. He was a hard, but fair, footballer who played within the rules of the game throughout a distinguished career that made him one of the Northern game’s legends during the 1920’s and 1930’s.
Born and raised in Dudley, Russell started a career in 1924 in which he would play more than 300 matches – some of them with Gladesville, Ryde, Aberdare and West Wallsend – and score more than 450 goals. In 1923, in the Adamstown under 18 team, he finished the season with more than 40 goals. Heavy scoring such as that, however, soon became second nature. In 1929, when he returned to Rosebuds after a State League season with Gladesville-Ryde, Russell proved there was no place like his Adamstown home by hammering in 32 goals (a club record) in 26 matches. Twice in the 1930 season, Russell recorded 5-goal games as Adamstown marched through to the State League premiership, while in 1927 he scored hat tricks in 3 successive matches against Weston, West Wallsend and China. Russell played for NSW against China and Czechoslovakia and toured Java with the 1931 Australian team. Upon retiring from active football, Russell served as team manager, vice president, selector, committeeman and president of the fledgling ‘Rosebud House’, as the licensed club was known in its infancy.

Is the email for the JDL squad correct?

I look forward to attending some games at your ground and eating some sausage sandwiches.

Can't go wrong joining this club. They look after their lads .

Just wondering if RB is needing an under 14 male player? Fast runner, been playing for 9 years.
