Fourths Best and Fairest
The Fourth Eighteen was formed in 1951 and was to be used as a feeding ground to the 3rd XVIII (Richmond Thirds), a team to cater for lads who had recently left school and also a recruiting ground for boys from 14 years upwards who lived in unallotted territory. (Richmond Annual Report 1952)
NB: The Under 17 Grade played its matches during the 1969 season at Essex Heights Oval, Mount Waverley, and transferred from the Melbourne Boys' League to the South-East Suburban League.
As a result, the Richmond Fourths became Essex Heights Football Club Under 17.
First place received The Roy Woods Trophy
