Let’s salute a truly great Newtown Jet on a significant birthday occasion
One of Newtown’s greatest players in our club’s 113-year history turned 70 on Wednesday.
Ken Wilson (above) played with Newtown from 1970 to 1974, and again from 1979 to 1983. He captained the club in its final first grade game in 1983.
He is the leading points-scorer in the club’s history with 1001 points, spread over 150 first grade appearances in the royal blue jersey.
Ken was a member of Newtown reserve grade premiership teams in 1970 and 1974, the 1973 Wills Cup winning team, and also a member of the 1981 Newtown first grade grand final team against Parramatta.
Best wishes for your 70th birthday Ken, from every member everywhere in the Newtown RLFC community.
