Retrospective Mail Medal
Mail Medals were presented in 1999 to 11 players who tied for the Mail Medal but lost on the previous count back system.
It has been discovered that Len Symonds should have received a retrospective Mail Medal on this occasion.
Len played for Perponda in the Murraylands League and won 3 Mail Medals in 1970, 1971 & 1974. He was runner up in 1968 & 1973.
In 1966 he lost on a count back to Trevor Kruger from Peake.
Len will be presented with his 4th Mail Medal from 1966.
