Mens Premier Team Makes History!!!
Last night in their final game of the regular season our Mens Premier team defeated Bangalow 3-2, securing 5th spot on the ladder and putting them into the finals for the first time ever.
This was a courageous effort by the team and one which was much celebrated afterwards.
And in the game before hand our Mens Premier Reserve team also won - consolidating their place in the top five (3rd or 4th) and putting them into the finals also.
See the article and video on our facebook page (link down on left).
