GRAND FINAL FEVER!!

Congratulations to all clubs competing in this Saturday's BL&GFA Grand Finals games being held at the Nuriootpa Rover Football Club.  It's shaping up to be a magnificent day with the weather predictions looking pretty good and six different clubs competing.  

9.15am - Junior Colts - Nuriootpa Rover vs Willaston
With Nuriootpa Rover undefeated this season they will obviously be favourites for the flag but don't underestimate the strength of Willaston who have come from third on the ladder with a wet sail and looking to keep the momentum going.

10.40am - Senior Colts - Willaston vs Nuriootpa Rover
Almost the mirror image of the Junior Colts with minor premiers Willaston looking to premiership glory over Nuriootpa Rover who stormed into the Grand Final from fourth on the ladder.  

12.25pm - Reserves - Angaston vs Tanunda
A shock win last Saturday for third placed Tanunda over minor premier South Gawler has seen the pies with their tails in the air going into the GF against Angaston who have been very strong all year.  This will no doubt be a cracker game.

2.20pm - A-Grade - Kapunda vs Barossa District  
These two clubs have been the stand-outs for the season and it's only fitting that they meet to battle for the premiership flag.  Minor premiers Barossa District had a couple of losses leading up to their Preliminary Final but they settled the supporter's nerves with a solid win over Freeling to lead them to the GF.  Kapunda will be cautiously confident after their 30 point win over Barossa in the Second Semi, but with Barossa's Grand Final track record, this game is shaping up to be the best of the season.

BL&GFA FEMALE FOOTBALL 2017

GRAND FINAL CARNIVAL

A short but very successful season for our Female Football competition culminated with a Grand Final Carnival involving the top 6 clubs in each grade. The games took place at Nuri Oval on Sunday 20th August. 

The premiership game for the Under 14's was between Angaston and Kapunda with Kapunda taking the chocolates.  

The Under 17 premiership was won by Barossa District, 3 goal winners over their Angaston opponents.  

The BL&GFA are extremely grateful to major sponsors, the Barossa Co-Op for their contribution and involvement with the competition.  The Co-Op have been massive contributors to community sport and to have them with us on this venture is extremely exciting for us.  We also thank the Herald for their assistance and promotion of the competition.

       

Well done to all involved with a special mention to Female Football Committee Chairperson, Natalie Seaman and Junior Football Officer Wayne Sheahan and the rest of the committee for all their work in the establishment of this flagship regional initiative.
