Sebastopol hoping for BFNL junior grand final breakthrough

Ballarat Football Netball League junior grand finals will be played at Mars Stadium for the first time on Sunday.

Lake Wendouree and North Ballarat dominate the netball match-ups, with the Lakers having a presence in five of the six grand finals and North with four teams. 

There is a wider spread in football ranks with seven clubs represented across the six divisions.

Sebastopol is attempting to end a long drought in the under-14 reserves, in which its faces Ballarat.

The Kookaburras have not contested a grand final since 2009, when they took out the under-14 premiership after finishing the home and away season in fourth position.

With no under-16.5 seniors and reserves, and under-14 seniors, under-14 reserves is the highest junior age group which Sebastopol played in this year.

The Burra finished on top with under the guidance of coach Matt Simpson.

Simpson said while Sebastopol had struggled in recent years to fulfil their football age groups in football, with  the right people now leading the club it was definitely heading in the right direction.

He said the club was now committed to improving and would not sit still waiting for this to happen.

“Now that we have had  a great year, across all junior age groups, the kids are aware that nothing comes without hard work and commitment, nothing is taken for granted and come game day.”
