HISTORY will be in the making at the Lexton Plains Football League senior grand final between Skipton and Carngham-Linton on Saturday.The two teams will lock horns at Learmonth, with the Emus looking to cap off a dream 2009 after taking the minor premiership and the Saints striving for their fourth successive LPFL triumph.Though the earliest football matches between Carngham, Linton and Skipton date back to approximately 1874, the first records of premiership competition between the clubs begin 100 years ago in 1909. Carngham and Linton were separate football clubs, and Carngham won its first premiership in 1913.After World War I, the three clubs had a fierce rivalry in the Linton and District Football Association. Linton won premierships in 1919, 1920 and 1922 while Skipton was victorious in 1921, 1923 and 1924. After winning the 1926 grand final, Carngham moved to the Rokewood-Cape Clear Association in 1927 and won back-to-back flags. In 1937, Skipton won the premiership in the Linton-Carngham District Football Association. Carngham then won eight premierships from 1938 to 1952, including five straight between 1946 to 1950.Carngham, Linton and Skipton joined the Western Plains Football League in 1953.Carngham then moved to the Ballarat Football League District Section in 1962. In the same year, Linton broke a 40-year drought by winning the Western Plains League premiership.Since the Carngham and Linton football clubs amalgamated in 1969, the combine has won 17 premierships.This Saturday will be the seventh time Carngham-Linton and Skipton have played off in the Lexton Plains grand final since 2000. A win to the Saints would equal the four consecutive premierships it won from 1982 to 1985 and also the club record of six premierships in a decade, which it also achieved in the 1980s.After breaking a 64-year premiership drought in 2001, Skipton was premiers in 2003 and 2005. A fourth Lexton Plains League premiership in 2009 would make it the most successful decade in the club's history.
