1904 SAFA Grand Final Wikipedia
The 1904 SAFA Grand Final was the only instance of a South Australian state league grand final being held at Jubilee Oval. Jubilee Oval at the time was the host grounds of the Royal Adelaide Show.
The 1904 Grand Final was a memorable one for Norwood who were down by 35 points at three-quarter time against traditional rival Port Adelaide. Norwood then produced an extraordinary burst of football with a goal by centre half forward Dean Dawson followed by two goals each from full forward, Bill Miller and half forward flanker, Stan Robinson. Norwood was only two points down with a minute remaining. Tommy Gibbons held a mark on a seemingly impossible angle. His kick sailed through the goal posts to give Norwood a four-point victory 9.8 to 8.10.
