Senior coach Johno Leoncini will stick with the challenge at Clunes in 2020.
The non-playing leader has committed to a third Central Highlands Football League season at the helm.
Leoncini, who had been chasing the Hepburn job vacated by Jason Olver at the end of 2017, has endured a tough time with the Magpies. During 2018, the senior side won only one game and also managed just the solitary triumph while taking the wooden spoon this year.
After much discussion, the CHFL board has settled on grounds for the opening weekend of finals.
Sebastopol's Marty Busch Reserve and Buninyong will host games on Saturday, while Bungaree and Dunnstown have been given the nod for Sunday.
In the senior football, minor premiers Buninyong will meet Waubra and Newlyn will battle Gordon in qualifying finals, while Hepburn must take on Skipton and Beaufort lock horns with Springbank in the two knockout encounters.
