The Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley Football Club’s top team won its first grand final in a quarter of a century in Lismore last weekend.

The last time the MBVFC men’s team won a grand final, only two of the current team were born, Kol Dimond MBVFC secretary said.

‘The internet was just ­being released, Freddie Mercury was not feeling too well, and our life long president Chris Fenwick was being told, even back then, that maybe he should consider retiring from the game! And yes, he’s still playing,’ he said.

The MBVFC beat Woodburn 3–0 in the Men’s Second Division grand final.

It was one of 30 grand ­finals played over the last three weeks in the Football Far North Coast league.

‘It was fantastic to see our young Men’s Division Two grand final winners last Saturday finally put this 25-year-old jinx to bed,’ he said.

‘Congratulations to the  club for a fantastic year’.
