Victorian State League on Fitzroy Cricket Ground, 1975-76

Here's another 22 games played on Fitzroy Cricket Ground from the State League in 1975 and 1976. The ground was Fitzroy United Alexander's home ground at this time. Noteable are the three 10,000+ crowds for the derbies against South Melbourne Hellas and the 1975 champioship clinching game against Polonia. If the 14,500 estimation for the first game below is anything like correct it must have been an impressive sight.   
This material adds to that presented in Soccer on Fitzroy Cricket Ground and brings the total number of games played there to over 100. 
Many thanks to John Punshon for this information.
