 Intersport Under 12 Lightning Premiership 

The annual Intersport Under 12 Lightning Premiership for the youngest players within the Bendigo Bank & Rural Bank CHFL was a great sucess despite cold and at times damp conditions at Creswick. 

Sixteen of the leagues seventeen clubs were represented and eventually resulted in a strong grand fianl performance by Skipton to defeat Buninyong. 

As always with this day the level of excitment is palpable and more than 500 junior footballers and netballers participated across the day. 

Special thanks to Intersport for again sponsorsing this day, the Western Bulldogs whose team added to range of activities available, all who umpired or managed teams across the day and Creswick FNC for hosting one of the largest days in the CHFL calendar.
