The Mullumbimby men’s reserve-grade hockey team have won three grandfinals in five years.

The Mullumbimby men’s hockey team won the Tweed Border reserve grade grandfinal last month after finishing the season as minor premiers for the fourth time in five years. 

In warm conditions at Murwillumbah the Mullum Mudcrabs took on Casuarina in the decider. 

Mullum’s defence held solid but several missed attacking opportunities resulted in the score being locked at 0–0 at 3/4 time.

The Mudcrabs through Simon Johnston were finally able to put one away early in the last quarter, with further goals to Darren Hunter and Jake Swift, taking the game away from Casuarina.

Simon Johnston took out best-on-ground and Baden East received the Tweed Border Hockey Association’s award for player of the year.

The 3–0 result gave the Mudcrabs their third major premiership in five years after previously winning the title in 2015 and 2016 and further reinforced the teams motto of ‘age is no barrier, training not needed’.
