The Brunswick Valley Bulldogs JAFC were asked to host the Junior AFL grandfinals on Sunday, which meant teams, coaches, and families came from all over the Northern Rivers to visit Brunswick for the day. 

The Brunswick Public School choir headed by lead vocalist Scout Bee-Jones sang the national anthem for the girls’ grandfinal.

This was the first year with a girls’ competition for the Junior AFL on the Northern Rivers. Last year it was mixed teams of boys and girls.

In their first year in the competition they managed to beat every team, and toppled the minor premiers in the grand final.
