Peter Rhoden recalled in 1976:
"In 1957, the club played in a Grand Final at Elsternwick Park against Alphington on a very windy day. We lost by 29 points but went up to A Grade. Two things remain in my mind, the first was Dick Day kicking the first three goals of the match with the wind. They were also our last goals, as we finished with 3.12. The second was how we crowded the forward line in desperation trying to kick goals. In that side, I was a player and after the game I talked with Brian Collopy about the errors we had made."
