WBFL President’s Report North Gambier and East Gambier have gained the right to play for the Deakin University Reserves premiership and again this should be a very high standard game.

Welcome to the 2012 Mt. Gambier Community Bank WBFL Grand Final Day. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our Business Partners, in particular our Major Affiliates Mt. Gambier Community Bank, Deakin University and Sungold Milk for their generous support during 2012. All of our sponsors are listed each week in the “Western”, please support them whenever possible. After 18 rounds and 5 finals of hard fought footy, we have now reached that ‘One Day in September’. The Sungold Milk under 18 competition sees Hamilton Imperials and Portland vying for the flag. These two teams have outstanding talent and I recommend everybody gets to the Grand Final early to witness what will surely be a great contest.

The Mount Gambier Community Bank senior premiership comes down to a battle between South Gambier and North Gambier. Both sides are in terrific form and either team can win the big one. The Demon machine continues to roll on, while the Tigers are desperate to end the Club’s premiership drought that dates back to 1989. Thanks to all club executives, especially the Presidents, Secretaries and Operations Managers for the support and co-operation provided to the League executive this year. Congratulations to all Clubs that have hosted finals this year, every day has been well managed and the hospitality much appreciated. Congratulations also to all the club and individual award winners at last week’s League Medal Count, headed by our joint 2012 Brian Hennessy Western Border Medalists Gareth Crawford (Hamilton Football Club) and Richard O’Grady (North Gambier Football Club) and a huge thanks to the Casterton FNC for hosting such a memorable event.

To the three Clubs, Hamilton, Hamilton Imperials and Portland, leaving the league at the end of this season, I wish them every success in their venture to the Hampden League for 2013 and beyond. They have all made significant contributions to the WBFL over the past 49 years. To the six Clubs that remain in the WBFL, I believe that there are very exciting times ahead. All Clubs are optimistic about the future and we look forward with enthusiasm to the start of the 2013 season. On behalf of the Board and our Clubs, thanks to the two umpiring bodies, the Western District Umpires Association and the South East Football Umpires League for the job they have done this year. Congratulations to all umpires officiating today. Best wishes to East Gambier FNC in hosting our 2012 Grand Final Day. It is a massive undertaking, but I am sure the Club will rise to the occasion. Finally, I wish all sides playing in Grand Finals today the best of luck. Let’s make sure all games are played in the correct spirit, on and off the field.

NOTE FROM WORKSAFE VCFL CEO, STEVEN REAPER On behalf of the Board, Management and Staff of the WorkSafe VCFL can I welcome everyone to the 2012 Grand Final Day. Country football finals are still the crowning glory of our sport. Nearly a quarter of a million people will have gone to a country football final this year with over $1.5 million dollars coming through the gates on VCFL Grand Final Days alone. I have no doubt that the size of the crowd here today shows the importance of local football and netball in this community and district. This is the day that is so cherished by players, coaches, administrators and fans of football from the youngest to the very oldest. It is the day you dream about while running pre season sprints, or while you lie awake at night thinking of how things can be made better at your club. It has been the focus of every Thursday night dinner and team selection since April, of every kilometre on the road to away venues, and every time you have pulled on your club colours. It may be the moment you have been

waiting decades for in the support of your beloved local team. At the rising of the sun today, just two teams are left to contest the ultimate prize in our sport – a premiership. Congratulations to all clubs and teams in both football and netball that have made the 2012 finals and in particular well done to those that are playing for the ultimate prize today. Cherish the moment and enjoy what will be for some a lifelong memory. Can I also take a moment to congratulate the umpires for today’s games. It is a great reward for your efforts throughout the year that you have been chosen to officiate the most important games of the year. It will be a day and a match that you will remember forever. Measuring club success can take different forms and I have no doubt that for many clubs and their teams it is not as simple as just the win-loss ratio, but also how teams performed against their pre season expectations or when compared to recent seasons. One thing is as true in football as in life – the sun will always rise tomorrow, and pre season is just around the next corner!

McDonald Park Map of Facilities

For all of you out there today who have played a role in their team and club throughout the year I commend and thank you for your efforts across the season. Without our club volunteers and administrators we would not have a game – let alone the opportunity to see the best two teams in the year battle it out on the field and the courts today. We all expect the players out there today to perform fairly and at their best – and the same goes for the spectators around the boundary. It is all about respect – respect for the players, the umpires, the opposition supporters and, at the end of the day, respect for yourself and your behaviour. Don’t let a few drinks or a few mischosen words get in the way of a great day out at the footy. Enjoy the day where dreams do come true albeit for some!!!

FROM THE JUNGLE Well folks, here we are, Western Border Granny Day 2012. An historic day, for a variety of reasons. One of the great WBFL rivalries gets another airing this week, with the North of the Mount facing off against the South. For the Demons, it is the club’s 20th appearance at the main event in the 49 year history of the League, and a chance to make it an even dozen Cups in the trophy cabinet. An amazing effort for a club that boasts its player payment budget is less that Gina Reinhardt’s future employees’ payroll. For North, another opportunity to reopen their cabinet, that is if someone can remember where the damn key is! With so much at stake you would expect both clubs to enter the arena as hungry as brown bears waking from a winter sleep. But let’s face it, this game isn’t a matter of Life and Death-it’s much more important than that! No point combing over the bald spots, North danced around like dogs on lino at McLaughlin Park in the second semi. They looked as though they didn’t want to be there, and collectively left the track with more questions to answer than Danny Nikolic at a steward’s inquiry. But back on dry turf last Saturday, it was

the North A Team that came to play as the Vic Tigers took a wrong turn and just kept going (via Pt Fairy was the word in the jungle) A couple of the Portland boys went down swinging too, making Tony Abbott’s uni days look like a stroll down Sesame Street. It’s hard to ignore South’s form line since Hamilton upset them at home mid season. Their only hiccups since have been a one point away loss to Portland, and a two points deficit to North in Round 12. In their last seven outings they have won by an average of 47 points, which includes big wins against East and Millicent, a 42 point demolition job on Portland in the qualifying final and a 38 point spanking of North on a heavy track in Millicent. The smaller patch at East may help the Demons shut down the North engine room, which they will need to do if they are to salute the judge at day’s end. Joint Brian Hennessy Medallist Richie O was outstanding last week, with Kurzy, Herring, Woodall, Perry & Co riding shotgun. But they will need to be every bit as sharp this week to hold down the Ds pipe band of Berky the Elder, Horsfall, Howie, Paprotny etc. Both sides have solid back ends, but North may just have a little more flexibility up the

pointy bit. Coach McConnell, the artist formerly known as the Michelin Man, will be the maverick at the roulette wheel. If he gets his dancing shoes on early, it could be tears before supper time for the Ds. But like I said earlier this year, his old stager counterpart Jon Copping may yet hold a couple of aces up those hairy sleeves. The ruck contests will play a big role as well, with the master Nulty turning his back on the leaping young gazelles Weistra and Dowdy. This could be as tight as pussy’s bow, but I think the Tigers’ monkey will be off the back at day’s end, finally heading back to the jungle for a well earned frothy after 23 years on the wagon. And he will have plenty of drinking buddies............... North by 5 points IN THE OTHER GAMES In the 2s, East might find that one year you are the top dog, the next season you are the lamp post. The thirds should be a pearler, with both Portland and Imperials strengthened by the return of senior grade players. No matter the result, the WBFL will say adios forever to the Vic Tiges and Bullies, but I think Imps may rain on Portland’s parade.

NEARLY 50 YEARS TO THE DAY… as reported in The Border Watch FOOTBALL CLUBS TO MAKE BIG DECISION MOUNT GAMBIER football club representatives decided last night to hold special meetings to discuss a proposed merger between the S.E. and Border League and the Western District League. It is anticipated that the meetings will be held prior to the next Board of Management meeting of the S.E. and Border League on Monday night next. The meeting was convened by the South Gambier Football Club, following a suggestion from the League’s Board of Management. Mr. R. C. Bruhn, the League President, was in the chair at the request of the convening club. Eighteen delegates attended, representing all Mount Gambier clubs.

SUMMARY Mr. Bruhn summarised events leading up to a suggested amalgamation with the Western District League. He said the W.D.L was also in trouble and their gates were not much higher than in the S.E.B.L.

collapse or something drastic will have to be done,” he said. “Our first object is to put the best possible football on the ovalsgames which the public will go to see.”

A merger could come about with four teams from the S.E.B.L and six from the W.D.L. This also had its complications. An additional problem, Penola and Millicent Clubs had pointed out that previous mergers had initiated in Mount Gambier, but when it came to a decision, Mount Gambier voted against it. Penola and Millicent, therefore, wished to have the feeling of the Mount Gambier clubs.

WEAKNESS Mr. A. T. Hogg (East) pointed to the weakness of the football system at present, where there was no follow on from school football, encouraging lads to go into other sports.

BIG COST

Mr. Bruhn contended that full use should be made of club coaches through putting the colts under their training.

Mr. M. L. Millhouse (South) pointed out it cost about $8000 pound to run football in Mount Gambier. Two teams would make for keen rivalry and subsequently, better football. The main problem of a new setup was to keep control of football in the area to ensure another association was not formed, putting the proposed merged clubs out of business.

Open territory has not improved football here. Players did not belong to anyone and a club had no territory to canvass for helpers or supporters. Dr. J. R. Nicholls (East) said they must admit the last ten years was a failure and the past had to be forgotten. They had to decide how many teams could be supported and whether clubs were prepared to merge, on this basis. This had to be taken back to the clubs to decide.

Mr. J. McGregor (South) thought Mount Gambier was trying to do the impossible by building up four teams. The aim should be to strengthen teams from this district and not from imported players. “It is getting to the stage where our football will

THE BORDER WATCH

seniors Today’s 49th annual Western Border Football League will be one of the more momentous in the league’s history. Just for a moment, ignoring the end result – whatever it may be – we should pause and farewell Imperials, Portland and Hamilton football netball clubs as they head to so-called greener pastures in the Hampden League next season. All have been wonderful ambassadors for the WBFL and WBNA since the inception of footy in 1964 and netball in 1984. Today however the football spotlight centres South and North, two old foes who have met in numerous great games, but only twice before on grand final day. The first was in 1998 when the then undefeated North went into the premiership playoff as a hot favourite, despite South having won the previous two flags. After three close quarters, South powered away to win by 41 points. Two years later at the same venue – Malseed Park – South won by 64 points to extend its premiership run to five in a row. Current day players Leigh Capewell and Heath Sims of South and North ruckman, David Nulty all took part in that game will renew acquaintances at McDonald Park this afternoon.

For YOUR local sport

Keep up to date with news

– We have it covered

and views in your district

– 4 days each week It’s fair to say, Capewell, Sims and Nulty and their hundreds of teammates in the 14 years since that match have enjoyed the journey. Capewell and Sims have got an overflow of premiership medallions. Nulty has five losing grand finals against his name and he is determined to stop the rot. North is arguably one of the most exciting teams to watch when everything is go its way. Alongside Nulty, the stars of North to watch today will be coach Justin McConnell, Patrick Perry, captain Adam Kurzman, forward Anthony Kilsby and newly crowned Brian Hennessy Medallist, Richard O’Grady. On the opposite side, players who have the potential to win the match for South include coach Jon Copping, Brett O’Neil, Simon Berkefeld, Brodie Foster, Jake Dowdy and – despite his age – Leigh Capewell. If betting were legal on this game, bookies would be hard pressed to split them. On the toss of a coin, South to win narrowly. On the netball courts, Millicent is lining up for its seventh consecutive grand final and will be pitted against Portland which is chasing its first and - because it’s leaving for Hampden - its last WBFL premiership. Millicent are without coach Audine Bryant because of injury and Portland might just cause the upset.

SOUTH GAMBIER FOOTY NOTES Faced with some fairly ordinary playing conditions and a strong opposition, it took a little time to get in the swing of things last fortnight. North got away to a quick start and with the condition of the field taking some getting used to, it was the dying minutes of the first quarter before we scored our first major to trail by three points at the first break. Two goals early in the second took us into the lead and there was no looking back from that point on. We carried a 13 point lead into half time, holding North to a single goal. This effort was repeated in the third while we added on another 3 goals extending our lead to 28 points at the final break. The Tigers were let off their chain slightly in the last quarter with two goals conceded however we stacked on another three goals and a few extras taking the win at the final siren by an impressive 38 points. Today’s game will likely bear no resemblance to our last meeting, with North showing their determination in last week’s Prelim however South’s consistency in their attack and defence over the last two months should make for a fantastic game. Congratulations to Simon Berkefeld (runner-up WBFL Medal), Brett O’Neil (equal SA Footballer of the Year), Heath Sims (SA Best Team Man), Ray Jackway (Services to WBFL), Barry “Boxer” Ellis (Volunteers Award) and to all club players, members and supporters in winning Most Disciplined Club three years running.

Coach

Danny Warren

Andrew Pepper – Imperials

Chris Povey – East Gambier

Simon Berkefeld – South Gambier

A real emerging talent, his determination and intensity for the ball saw him quickly become one of the first picked each week for the Bulldogs. Used in a variety of roles, Pepper won the hard ball, could run and carry, and played creatively or in a negating role with success.

The SA Dogs’ vice-captain had an outstanding season, and when across halfback, was virtually impassable. Povey spring-boarded many of East’s attacks, and in a largely inexperienced team, his leadership was inspirational and lifted the team when it needed it most.

The 2011 Brian Hennessey medallist has had yet another phenomenal season, gaining a representative spot in the South Australian Country team. Has the habit of finding the football often, and when he has it, Berkefeld uses it with deadly precision.

Luke Van Heugten – Portland

Steve Duldig – Millicent - captain

Gareth Crawford – Hamilton

Without doubt, the best centre half-back in the competition. Put big name forwards to shame at times through his ability to out-read and outthink his opponents. The big man can be relied upon to win most contests he takes part in, and has had another magnificent season, earning the captaincy of this team of the year

A genuine star of the competition. Impossible to go past when picking the centreman, and a very worthy co-winner of the 2012 Brian Hennessey Medal. Crawford single-handedly kept the Magpies in games they weren’t entitled to win, and was a standout in Hamilton’s final season as a stand-alone club.

Sensational at full back for the Vic. Tigers and a big reason why Portland made it as far as it did this season. Brilliant by hand and foot, Van Heugten was miserly in defence and was very rarely beaten. Can rebound from deep in defence to create opportunities for those further down the ground, and was resolute as the last man back.

Matt Newell – Hamilton Imperials Genuine class. Newell would have presented some harrowing night’s sleep for opposing coaches during the year, as he was impossible to shut down wherever he played on the ground. Used mostly as a defender by Jake Myles, Newell played tall and short, and with a tremendous leap, no ball was safe in the sky.

Brodie Foster – South Gambier Versatile player who spent just as much time forward as back, and did what was required, wherever that was, in any given week. Like Newell, was a real handful when allowed to drift forward, with strong hands and an accurate kick, was a handy foil for Leigh Capewell and Jon Copping, and was more than capable of kick-starting an attack from defence.

Josh Woodall – North Gambier Has made a massive impression in his first season, after transferring from Dartmoor in the South West DFNL, winning the best under-21 player, and oh so close to winning the league best and fairest. Gave the SA Tigers a different look about its midfield and will be very important to North Gambier’s grand final hopes.


SATURDAY, September 22nd, 2012 Page 13

Spec picks team of the year

Danny Warren

Jon Copping – South Gambier - coach

Richard O’Grady – North Gambier

Started off a little slow, but has warmed up as the season progressed to be in sparkling form for the pointy end of the season. Has performed a magic feat of which David Copperfield would have been proud to get his Demons into the grand final, when just six weeks ago they looked a distinct possibility to miss finals altogether.

The co-winner of the Brian Hennessey Medal, O’Grady has made his presence felt in the biggest possible way in his first year in the competition. Has marshalled the SA Tigers midfield into a truly feared outfit, and with his footy-smarts and ball winning talent, has carved up most teams in 2012.

Jarrod Hayse – Portland

Jake Myles – Hamilton Imperials

Remarkably overlooked by many when thinking of key forwards, Hayse had a magnificent season, kicking 44 goals in 14 matches after returning to the team in May, four of those in last week’s losing preliminary final. Is sharp on the lead, has great hands, and his kicking boot rarely goes astray, and anyone who averages three goals a game at centre half-forward is a danger to any rival team.

Another player in his first season of Western Border football, Myles brought instant bite to the bark of the Bulldogs. The fierce competitor was an inspirational leader for his young team, and when the team needed someone to look to, Myles always delivered.

Brad Thomas – Hamilton – vice captain Did an amazing job in his first year of senior coaching, getting the very best out of his Magpies who were never that far off the mark. Winning plenty of the ball himself, Thomas also made the most of his opportunities, regularly wowing the crowd with some truly miraculous goals.

Dylan Ryan – Casterton

Anthony Kilsby – North Gambier The Tiger with a mane, Kilsby is a ball magnet who can win a game off his own boot. He does not need to seek the ball, it just seems to follow him, and when on his game, is impossible to tie down.

Brett O’Neil – South Gambier Stylish midfielder who can slip under the radar a bit. Deadly accurate with the ball, O’Neill is a class act who was an important factor in the Demons rise from below.

Was clearly the Cats best in a season they will want to forget. Ryan picked up league best on ground votes in games Casterton was annihilated in, leaving many to wonder if he could have been the medallist in a competitive team. Kicked 41 goals for the Cats, more than the next five on their goal kicking list combined.

Cam Haggett – Millicent

Justin McConnell – North Gambier

The reigning premier barely missed out on adding a wooden spoon to the trophy cabinet, and the desperation and class of Ransom was a large part of the Roos avoiding the dungeon.

The SA Tigers’ coach looked done and dusted for the year after suffering a badly broken jaw, but has made it back on the field for North Gambier’s finals campaign. The big fella is bona-fide star of the game, who kicks bags of goals and is nigh on impossible to beat in a marking contest.

Jarrod Holt – Portland Plagued with back problems all season, Holt still managed to win the league’s goal kicking award this season. Led Portland from the front this year and his ability to kick the team lifting goal was crucial throughout the year.

David Nulty – North Gambier Arguably the strongest man in the competition, the veteran is still clearly loving his footy. Always competitive, his consistency, steadiness and the ability to work well with his midfielders has been a major reason why the SA Tigers have been flag favourites all year.

Can do it all, take a huge mark, kick a long goal and even rove his own tap-outs. Started the season in magic form, and alongside Michael Bennett, formed the most feared ruck combination in the league.

Josh Ransom – West Gambier

Sam Fleming – Portland Very unlucky not to be in the 22, Fleming’s fitness, dash and skills, topped by pinpoint accurate kicking, were a sight to behold at times and he was easily the Tigers best player through the finals.

Tim Meulendyks – Hamilton Imperials Another who just missed, Meulendyks has that touch of magic that makes ‘somethings’ out of ‘nothings’. On the way up and the sky’s the limit.

Daniel Falcone – Portland Assumed a lot of the responsibility in the Portland midfield after Marcus England broke his leg, and with Fleming, made sure that the Tigers lacked nothing.

A Grade Match Review

GD/WD - Kimmi Varcoe: A reliable defender in 2012. She is a very talented and skilful player, who is strong in the air. Her speed and ability to read the ball allows her to take intercepts at crucial times. She combines well with the experienced Hayley Dunn who seems to bring the best out in her.

Millicent has been at the forefront of A Grade competition for many years and continue to thrive with the development of some very talented juniors. Rebecca Skinner (Coach – Portland) has played at national competition level and hopes to get her side over the line after quite a few years in the finals race and a runner-up spot in 2010.

GD/GK - Hayley Dunn: Selection in WBNA Team of the Year. An outstanding season at GK, continually shutting down her opponent’s impact on the game. She is co-captain of the team and is an inspirational leader who inspires her team mates each week. Her height and determination to win the ball make her a tough and intimidating defender and her pressure over the shot is a feature of her game.

Millicent will most certainly miss the speed and athleticism of Audine Bryant, but they will no-doubt benefit from her sideline perspective. On court, they have the 2012 Western Border Netball League Best & Fairest Winner in Donna Denton who controls the Saints attack with expertise.

Team Profile - Portland

GA/GS - Linda Boylan: An ever reliable play maker. She consistently shoots accurately and is a great team player

GS/GA - Michelle Finck: A clever player who uses the goal circle well and brings her other shooter into the game.

In what is set to be a thriller and a fantastic example of netball for spectators, the Saints will battle the Victorian Tigers for the final time in Western Border history.

GS/GA - Stephanie Arnott: Dynamic tall player who plays best when strong and presents under the goal post. Arnott finishes off with great timing from her team mates feeds.

GS/GA - Stacey Fox: A great vertical leap. A strong holding player with a great shot. Back at West this season after some time off.

GD/GK - Rebecca Skinner: Selection in WBNA Team of the Year. Coach of the Portland Tigers. She is a tall athletic player who is very quick across the court, turning defence into attack. She constantly applies defensive pressure over the ball and is a strong rebounder.

WD/WA - Tanaya Redman: This is her first season of A Grade with Millicent and she has improved throughout the year. She is an underrated player with a great work ethic who plays a tight and attacking brand of netball. Redman’s determination and ability to chase balls down are quality traits associated with her game.

WD/GD - Kylie Grosser: Helped out the A Grade by playing in defence when the opportunity arose during the season. She is a reliable and tenacious defender who reads the play well. Her speed across the court allows her to cover the space of her opponent and her fitness level this season has been an attribute for her team.

A Reserve - West Vs Portland Team Profile - West

With the two teams boasting 7 Western Border Netball League Team of the Year players between them, they really are the cream of the crop.

GS/GA - Kelly Anson: An accurate shooter who is quick and can sink goals from a long distance.

C - Ellen Zuenert: A very experience player who directs the mid court. She has outstanding passes and feeding skills WD - Larissa Carr: A very determined player who contests every ball. Carr is a great mover on court and can drive hard and fast. WD/C - Ellyse Humphries: Small but fast. She is a player who defends every ball and is a fantastic team player. GD/GK - Captain - Casey Anson: She has the excellent ability to read the play and get her hands to a lot of balls. She never gives up and throws herself into every contest. GK -Kathryn Walder: A solid and close checking keeper who is also a very strong rebounder. She reads the play well and sets up most of the play and movement of the ball from defence. WA/GS - Coach - Kate Sullivan: An experienced player with huge amounts of netball knowledge. She is a great director of the play on court. WA/C - Remy Grant: A young and super quick player who throws herself at every ball.

The Millicent goalies are sure to be put under constant pressure from the Portland defence and cannot afford too many missed attempts to be rebounded by Skinner or Rolph. Any turnovers will be quickly moved through centre court by Kerri Jennings & Chelsea McMahon and converted by Hockley or Arnott.

GA/GS/WA - Hannah Bunny: A young and accurate goalie. She possesses quick movement in goal circle and outstanding passing skills.

Tight defensive pressure applied by Dunn will ensure Arnott works for every possession in the Tigers goal circle whilst the Saints pressure at the centre pass will be aiming to block Portland’s drive.

Another match that has first and second ladder leaders from the minor round meet. The Roos were undefeated both times they met throughout the season and then easily accounted for the Tigers in the second semi-final. Grand Finals are anyone’s game of course and the drive and determination of Portland will ensure this game will be fought out until the final whistle. The combined experience and youth of the West Gambier side will be hard to contain, with many finals appearances amongst their playing group.

The final game of the year will be played at a frantic pace and both teams will be undeniably desperate to win the ball for their side and provide them with the greatest accolade of 2012.

PORTLAND FOOTY NOTES Not a great Saturday for our Senior players last weekend when North Gambier gave us a lesson in the basics of the modern game. They controlled the match and unfortunately we were left wallowing in the shallows. That is not say we didn’t have some honest toilers, the main one being Sam Fleming who showed he has really developed through the final series into a fine exponent of the game. Jarrod Hayse was a key target up forward and notched 4 goals, a fair day’s work in a beaten side. Others to provide positive support were Beau Bentley, Jaron Quinlivan, Hamish Withers, Justin Van Heugten and Ben Malcolm. This weekend our Under 18’s do battle wih Imperials in the big one and here’s hoping that they can bring the season to a successful conclusion. Presentations will be back at the clubrooms at 7.00pm

IMPERIALS FOOTY NOTES

Our Under Eighteens eventually triumphed after a tight struggle in the Preliminary Final last week, with first one side then the other gaining the ascendancy. It may have been only an 8 point win, but that victory now has so much history attached. It means that the Hamilton Imperial Football Netball Club will be represented in the last Grand Final, of the Western Border Football League, in its current form. The U/18s achievements have been against the odds all the way through the season, with the needs of the senior team meaning that on most match days, the team was without eight or more of its key players. Our club has many fond memories of its time in the WBFL and we will farewell the league with mixed emotions at McDonald Park today. Over the years many friendships have been formed; and maintained, between players, officials, and support staff, and those associations will be missed. Among them the one and only ‘Milo’ who we usually encountered at away games in the ‘Mount’. His entertaining, interesting commentary and keen support for our club was always appreciated - Thanks ‘Milo’... Finally in our last entry in this publication, Imperials extends its best wishes for the future to everyone in the Western Border Football League. Go Bulldogs!

NORTH GAMBIER FOOTY NOTES

Choose a house you like. Create a home you love.

Well here we are on the last day of the season and what a great year its been. Congratulations to the individual trophy winners last week at the league medal count. Richie O’Grady joint WBFL medalist and best SA player, Josh Woodall runner up and best under 21 WBFL player, Anthony Kilsby goal umpires award, Tyson Currie runner up in the under 18 league B&F and leading goal kicker, and Mick McRae leading reserves league goalkicking award. The club also had there count and winners were Richie O’Grady in the A grade, Mick McRae in the B’s and Tyson Currie in the thirds. Big congratulations to these guys, but now individual awards are finished and the real reason for playing is here, a chance for ultimate team success with a premiership. Today we have two sides in with our under 18s unfortunately going down last week in what was a fantastic effort where they left nothing behind and came off the field knowing they had given absolutely everything. Players to get a mention were Alex Bowd, Hamish Telford, Jack Pudney, Troy Hatt, Thomas Ashby, Jack Gibbs. The reserves have been looking for this day for 12 months, the boys finished off well last week with Jamie Yeates, Brett Kennedy, Dean Watson, Kevin Opperman, Kyle Kuhn, Paul Griffith particuarly good on the day. The A grade played the game we all know can be played with an absolute team effort every player played there role brilliantly. One highlight that got the supporters all round the ground applauding and the players absolutely inspired was Locky Herrings mark which saw him and an opponent running toward each other at break neck speed to mark a high kick and Locky never backed off an inch and took the mark, real stirring stuff. Players to get a mention in what could be classed all played well Richie O’Grady, Locky Herring, Troy Hosking, David Nulty, Patty Perry, Josh Woodall. Today is all about getting around as one club supporting each other and doing anything possible to help one another. It has been a great year, where the players, trainers and any support staff have busted there behinds all year to be here. Only one way to reward yourselves for ultimate success, leave nothing behind and bring home the cup to Tigerland. Go get em Tiges, Richard Copeland.

SATURDAY, September 22nd, 2012 Page 29 38 - The Border Watch, Thursday, September 13, 2012

The Border Watch’s WBFL Team-of-the-Year Backs

Matthew Chapman Games: 16

North Gambier

Luke Van Heugten Games: 16

Goals: 2

Comment: Unassuming defender who just simply gets the job done. Not confined to playing in the backline, but he knows how to handle the role. Rarely beaten. First time selection in this side.

Grant Coxon

Portland

Goals: 0

Games: 13

Comment: Arguably the most consistent defender in the competition. Van Heugten has emerged as possibly the most improved defender in the competition, despite the fact he has already played in three premierships with Portland (2006-08). Good kick, good mark and great close checking full back. First time selection.

Casterton

Goals: 15

Comment: Juggled the role of playing coach and No. 1 ruckman in a fledgling side that struggled through a severe lack of experience. Played in the Western Border’s interleague team as captain and has previously won selection in The Border Watch team in 2009.

Half backs Brodie Foster Games: 14

South Gambier

Steve Duldig Games: 16

Goals: 20

James Paprotny

Millicent

Goals: 1

Games: 16

Comment: Even though Foster has 20 goals against his name, he has spent a fair amount of time at the other end of the ground, playing across half back. He adds versatility to this outfit. An outside chance to win the Brian Hennessy Medal on Sunday. He will prove to be a key factor in the grand final. First time selection.

Comment: Stalwart and loyal Saint, who rarely lowers his colours to his immediate opponent.

Jake Harrap

Richard O’Grady

South Gambier

Goals: 16

Comment: Another one of South’s increasing number of players that can be used in a variety of positions, although as a running half back does appear to suit him best.

Has great stamina and reads the play better than most defenders in the competition.

Represented the Western Border in Geelong at the VCFL Championships.

Third consecutive season he has been named at CHB in The Border Watch All-Star outfit.

Maiden selection in The Border Watch All-Stars.

Centre line Games: 14

East Gambier

Games: 15

Goals: 7

Comment: Energetic small man, can play on ball or around midfield. Has come under notice of SANFL talent scouts and has already played several underage games with Glenelg. Has a big future. First time selection.

Josh Woodall

North Gambier

Goals: 11

Games: 12

North Gambier

Goals: 11

Comment: One of the best rookie players to emerge in the WBFL in recent seasons.

Comment: New to the Western Border this season but hit the ground running with a series of outstanding games. Controlled the midfield for the Tigers and is one of the main reasons North topped the ladder. Took over coaching duties when Justin McConnell was sidelined with a broken jaw. Represented his club, league and state in the Australian Country Championships this season.

Has a face only a mother could love, courtesy of his other sporting love, rodeo riding. Has added a breath of fresh air to the Tigers’ midfield and on-ball brigade. Has also played a handful of underage games with Glenelg in the SANFL.

First time selection in All-Stars team.

First time selection.

Half forwards Anthony Kilsby Games: 16

North Gambier

Goals: 43

Jon Copping Games: 14

www.borderwatch.com.au

Comment: Had to lift his rate on the forward line midseason when coach Justin McConnell was absent through injury. Fairly or unfairly he may be seen as the Tigers’ No. 3 forward behind McConnell and Scott Flett, but Kilsby is a class act when he’s on song. First time selection.

Jake Myles

(captain) South Gambier

Games: 15

Goals: 47

Comment: He may not be in the best form of his life, but what he’s produced in the latter half of the season has been nothing short of sensational and that goes for his coaching effort as well. Has taken the Demons from a possible onlooker for the finals to a premiership contender. Will coach his 100th game in the grand final.

(coach)

Imperials

Goals: 41

Comment: Has proved to be an inspirational leader at Imperials this season, lifting the Bulldogs from eighth into a top four side and on the basis of that has been named coach of this All-Star team. Had a sensational first half of the season before rival clubs became more aware of his talents. Expected to poll well in the Brian Hennessy Medal, but may not score quite enough votes to win.

This is his third selection in The Border Watch team and second as captain.

www.borderwatch.com.au

Forwards Jarrod Holt Games: 14

Portland

Justin McConnell Games: 12

Goals: 65

Brent Howard

(vc) North Gambier

Goals: 54

Games: 16

Comment: Winner of the WBFL goalkicking this season and in his second year as Portland coach has the Tigers still alive in the finals race. Often appears to suffer from niggling back pain and not built like the traditional high marking, long kicking full forward, Holt cannot be underestimated in how he gets the task done. Third straight year that he was won selection in our AllStars team.

Comment: Left a gaping hole in North’s forward line when he suffered a broken jaw in Round 13. He still managed to average 4.5 goals a game when he was there and topped his club’s list and finished second at league level. McConnell returned to the field last weekend but was sporting a helmet and chin guard. He now faces a battle to get the Tigers in a second straight grand final.

Jake Dowdy

Simon Berkefeld

South Gambier

Goals: 16

Comment: Former WBFL Medallist (2004) that has returned “home” after some seasons with Casterton. May have lost a little of his pace, but none of his ball-sense or ingenuity in how to get his team moving forward. Get in his way at your own peril. First time selection.

Third consecutive year he has won selection in The Border Watch team.

Followers Games: 16

South Gambier

Games: 14

Goals: 3

Josh Ransom

South Gambier

Games: 14

Goals: 22

West Gambier

Goals: 5

Comment: Is he the most improved ruckman in the competition? Could play in a number of positions, with a running wingman the first in mind.

Comment: Named in this squad for the third time in four seasons. The reigning Brian Hennessy Medallist could be in the payout line again this Sunday.

Comment: One of the classiest rovers in the Western Border and named in this squad for the second time, following inclusion in 2010.

Has taken on the best ruckman from other clubs this season and has rarely been beaten across all four quarters.

Has had a busy year of football, playing with South, the WBFL representative side, the Murray South East Zone team, the South Australian Country side at national level and Glenelg reserves. He also found time to win his 11th best and fairest in the local basketball competition.

He didn’t have of the luxury of working alongside the likes of Tim O’Brien, Luke Davey, Brad Wilson and Tom Holmes this season, but he still made his presence felt in a side that could only manage three wins.

First time selection.

Interchange Michael Bennett Games: 16

Millicent

Goals: 20

Brett O’Neil Games: 16

Comment: Returned to Millicent this season after several years in the SANFL with Glenelg. It is not just his height that makes him a valuable player, but he has extraordinary pace and agility. In a mid-season game against West Gambier he literally won the match off his own boot when he kicked four goals in six minutes to turn a 21-point deficit into a 3-point victory. Won selection in the Western Border interleague team this season.

Brad Thomas

South Gambier

Games: 16

Goals: 16

Hamilton

Goals: 19

Comment: Lifted the Magpies to a level that they were competitive and rarely thrashed, unlike the previous two years.

Comment: How this player did not win a role in this starting XVIII adds weight to the strength and talent of the team. His class and Rolls Royce movement around the South Gambier midfield is part of the season why the team is lining up for another grand final next week.

His first season coaching in the WBFL has given Thomas a new outlook on the game. Finished runner-up in Hamilton’s goalkicking award, one behind David Andrivon.

Second time selection in The Border Watch squad.

First time selection.

First time selection in TBW team.

Emergencies The Border Watch, Thursday, September 13, 2012 - 39

Dylan Ryan Games: 15

Casterton

Tim Meulendyks Games: 16

Goals: 41

Nick Bartetzko

Imperials

Games: 12

Goals: 34

Comment: Won Casterton’s best and fairest award in a season that saw the club win just one game. Has previously won the Cats’ B&F in 2008 and 2010.

Comment: One of a core group of improving youngsters at the tri-colours and his form this season was super consistent. Has a great future.

Represented the WBFL in Geelong in the VCFL Championships.

First time selection in The Border Watch team.

North Gambier

Goals: 0

Comment: Has emerged as North’s best full back option for some years. His niggling tactics have no doubt got up the nose of most forwards this season. Takes the attitude that it doesn’t matter if he doesn’t get a possession as long as his immediate opponent has less. A beauty for fans of old fashioned full backs.

First time selection in The Border Watch All-Star team.

First time selection.

Coach: Jake Myles (Imperials)

Captain: Jon Copping (South Gambier)

Vice captain: Justin McConnell (North Gambier)

MILLICENT NETBALL

WBNA PRESIDENT REPORT

With perfect weather at South last week let’s hope Grand Final day is the same! A great fight back in the last quarter by the B Grade girls secured them a place in the Grand Final today! They were able to turn around a 5 goal deficit to win by 4 so I’m sure they’re heading in the GF with a lot of confidence in their ability to win under pressure. It is great to see that we have two teams once again in the Grand Final and we know our supporters will be right behind us today doing their bit to get us over the line in both A & B Grade. The A Grade girls will be without their inspirational co-coach Audine and will be fighting all the way against Portland to try and win for her. The whole club wishes Audine all the best with her recovery from her operation.

Welcome everyone to the Grand final of the WBNA and WBNFL. What an exciting finals series it has been, with many close games this has been one of the exhilarating finals that I have been a part of both in my role as President and one of a parent.

We also had a great day at Casterton winning the Most Disciplined Club award and this is something we have been working very hard to win. Discipline will be so important in today’s games and the girls will be determined to show this. Congratulations to the following winners of individual awards; Donna Denton (A Grade B & F), Paula Tunkin (A Res R-UP B&F), Hayley Dunn, Elise Reilly, Audine Bryant and Donna for Team of the Year, Andrew Nitschke (Reserves B & F) and Bronte Grosser (Reserves R-UP). GO SAINTS!!

PORTLAND NETBALL Hi All, well we have finally arrived at the end of the Season, with grand finals being played today. I am pleased to report that we have four teams participating in the grand finals. First of all our A.Grade will be up against Millicent after their win against West Gambier last week. A.Res have also made the Grand final with a win over Imperials. C.Grade will front up to West Gambier and our 17/under will have a good crack at the Grand final after a well fought out game against East Gambier last week. I must comment on our 13/under girls who lost to North Last week, what a wonderful effort from their Coach Sarah and the girls for getting into the Preliminary final but sadly went down on the day to North Gambier. Good luck to all four teams for today. Congratulation go to Cathryn Walder who clock up 200 games for our club last week well done Cathryn. Also well done to Wendy Falconer who won C.Grade Best and Fairest and to Lauren Hockley runner up in A.Grade and Jenna Domburg Runner up in B.Grade. Well done Girls. This may be the last time I write for the Western ,so Best of luck to all concerned .Yours in Netball Rhonda Compton.

This grand final we will be saying goodbye to our rivals and friends, Portland, Hamilton and Hamilton Imperials, we wish all three clubs the best of luck in their new league, it will be mixed emotions for all clubs both staying and going but we at the WBNA are looking forward to moving our association into a new era and look forward to what is to come. The WBNA will continue to be a strong association with strong competition. I would like to thank East Gambier for hosting the final today and all the clubs that have hosted over the series. The effort that goes on behind the scenes to make these days a special one for both players and spectators is no mean feat. So I take this opportunity to thank you all, the volunteers that make these days as special as they are. The WBNA Executive have worked extremely hard not only through the series but all throughout the year, these hard workers are your club people who put the extra effort in to ensure that we continue to have a competition, so if you see them out and about today please say gidday and thank them for their dedication to the sport. A special mention must go out to our umpires from not only today but throughout the year, whether you agree with their decisions or not we would not have a competition without them, and I challenge you that when this happens and you go to blame the umpire that you reflect and if you feel you can do a better job please talk to our umpire co-ordinator I am sure she would love to put you through the gradings to become future umpires! So to our umpires today good luck, enjoy and thankyou! So as we all come together today to barrack for our daughters, friends, mums, nanna's, sisters enjoy the day, enjoy the atmosphere, enjoy the camaraderie and most of all enjoy this wonderful sport that we all enjoy!! Good luck to all the teams today, whether you win or lose today you are already winners!! Thankyou Mignon Bruce - President WBNA
