In 1979 the Newtown Police rugby league club was created. Two ex Newtown first grader's (the equivalent to todays NRL), Dave Oliveri and John Floyd enthusiastically encouraged the young talent to get together and learn their intensity to training, committment to playing, whilst enjoying a lot of beers and laughs along the way.

With a few hard heads in Barry Craze, Julias Marlow,Brian Fulmer, Murray Reynolds, Neil Cremen and George Gorgiou, combined with a lot of tough enthusiastic youngsters including Bobby Capel, Wayne 'Butch' Evans, Wes Green, Neil Saville,Gary Bourke, Mark Moroney, Camillo Casaclang, John Graorke, 'Squizzy' Taylor, Mark 'Bumper' Farrell and many others, Dave 'Lips' Oliveri and 'Floydy" gelled the side into a great team that triumphed, winning three elite midweek Police competitions from 1979-1981.
Bob Capel and Gary Bourke went on to play grade football with Wests indicating the class of these youngsters.

Each home game provided the opportunity for some of the locals, such as 'Jacko' who paired up with the legendary Newtown Police intelligence man, Lenny Gent, to yell for their beloved 'Blues'.

It was a great era in Newtown Police football and many fantastic memories and friendships made, that still last today.
