Another two grandfinal games for the Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley FC and another two wins.

Our minor premier Men’s division four team showed great spirit to come back from 2–0 down to defeat Ocean Shores 4–2.

A special mention must go to our central defence general Hank Gijsbers, who after many many years of being a standout player at our club finally has a grandfinal winner’s medal.

On Sunday our top club team the Women’s division two had to fight long and hard to pip Lismore Workers 3–2 in a gripping final.

It doesn’t matter where teams finish in the league come finals time and the elimination games seem to balance everybody out and this was a great example of nail-biting football.

A fantastic season for our women and a special mention must go out to our Golden Boot winner Steph Foreman.
