Well the Winter Competition is over for another year, and we can really get excited and celebrate the club’s achievements, because we have 2 MEN’S PREMIERSHIPS following the grand finals this week!!! Congratulations to all the players on their hard work in achieving this! The women have taken the spotlight in recent years, so it’s great to see the guys now getting into the action too, with a double!! Our men’s ‘A’ team, last won a Winter premiership back in 1996 (they won the VicChamps in 2004), so this was a long time coming for the SL4 boys! Not to be upstaged, our men’s ‘B’ team put in a pearler to snare their 2nd Winter flag in the last 4 years, in the SL5 grade. Well done all!
Our women’s SL1 team faced a formidable opponent in Footscray for their grand final game, coming up short as the final whistle blew. This was their second consecutive GF appearance in the Winter Comp, and will put them in good stead to kick start the VicChamps. Our Youth Girls game over the weekend secured their spot in the Grand Final game, which will be against Ovens & Murray following the school holidays (date TBC). So we still have a chance to reign in another premiership! Fingers crossed for that one!
All the match reports and photos from the GRAND FINAL GAMES can be found in a special GF edition of The Weekly Wrap : 2014 Winter – GF Edition
