Reserves through to the Grand Final after comprehensive win over Old Carey in Saturdays preliminary final!!
'Roscoes Ressies' will join the Seniors on Grand Final Day next Saturday after keeping Old Carey goalless in the first half and continuing the demolition in the 2nd half, winning by 51 points..
Both teams will play Old Scotch in a replay of the first week of finals in what shapes up as a huge day for the OBGFC.
Our champion co-skipper, Harry Hill, has blitzed the field
in the Premier B, G.T. Moore Medal count, winning with 25 votes . Harry won by nine votes from Old Scotch
skipper, Jack Bull. Our boys polled 90
of the 108 votes allocated to our matches.
Harry produced a withering burst of form in the second half of the
season, polling seven Best on Grounds in the last eight matches. One can only wonder what his tally would have
been if he had not missed five games with a broken thumb! The radio commentators who spoke to Harry on
air after the count, were gobsmacked when Harry clarified that “missing a
couple”, actually meant five games!
Picking up a few in the first couple of matches, Harry wasn’t in the betting at the half-way mark, with team-mates Ben Jarick (11), Michael Karayannis (10), Andy Dewar (9) and Alex Mastromanno (9), all ahead of him. But those who had seen the Tonners’ matches were just waiting and rubbing our hands together in anticipation. Then came the rush! “Old Brighton … 3 votes … H. Hill”. It was like listening to a stuck record! Well done Harry. After claiming second place last year, you deserve this honour and we salute you. Harry might have stiffer opposition in our own vote count, but before then, there’s one more thing that needs to be done!
Old Brighton Grammarians polled 90 of a possible 108 votes in the Premier B vote count for 2017.

OBGFC will return to the Premier Division for the first time since 2014 following their 23-point win over Old Scotch at Box Hill City Oval. The Tonners were in control from the outset as they kicked four unanswered goals in the first term, before keeping the Cardinals to just two despite having the bulk of the play in the second. Leading by 17 points after a heated first half, the minor premiers sent home another six goals to five in the second half to run out the game comfortable victors. Daniel Anthony and Anthony Zimmerman kicked two goals each and were named best for the Tonners

We are excited to announce that Indi Tait and Morgan Mc Gregor have been selected to play in a "Young Guns" team which is a showcase game being conducted by AFL Victoria for up and coming talent in Women's football.
AFL Victoria surveyed AFLW clubs recruiting departments for nominations for players to participate in the game. A list of 140 was compiled from all competitions in Victoria and a short list of 44 was selected to participate in the game. Only 16 players from the VAFA made the final list.
The game will be held on Saturday 16th September at Coburg City Oval at 12:00
noon as a curtain raiser to the VFLW Preliminary final.
Congratulations to Indi and Morgs!!
India Tait has been named as one of five finalists in the Anytime Fitness Rising Star awards. After a thorough deliberation process, the five nominees shortlisted to win the 2017 Anytime Fitness Rising Star Award are in.
Those shortlisted and in the running to take out the coveted award at next Monday’s Women’s Presentation Night are Charlotte Pooley (Collegians), India Tait (Old Brighton), Meg Hermann (Old Carey), Natalie MacDonald (Marcellin) and Sarah Cameron (SKOB Saints).
Although in its first year for the women, the Rising Star Award has long been an accurate prelude of future football success, with previous men’s winners including two-time Woodrow Medallist Brendan Iezzi (2007), VFL listed players James Fletcher (2015), Anthony Scott (2014), Lachie Ferguson (2012) and Nick Wynne (2009) and AFL player Dan Nicholson (2010).
India Tait played just seven games for the Tonners this season, but was named in the best on six occasions. She was named the Anytime Fitness Rising Star nominee for Round 7 after leading the way with two goals in her side’s Development Division 1 victory over Ormond.
What the club said: “India is a very courageous midfielder who always puts the team first. She is a multi-talented sportswoman who also is an excellent soccer player for Bayside United. Her all ’round ball skills make her a formidable opponent.”
You can tell us who you think will win the 2017 Anytime Fitness Rising Star Award by voting on the poll on the VAFA home page.
