THE Loddon Valley Football-Netball League couldn’t have asked for any more on grand final day on Saturday.

Perfect spring weather and eight clubs represented in grand finals made for a bumper crowd that paid a gate of $38,500 at Newbridge.

The hosting of the grand final was significant for Newbridge, with it coming four years after the club was devastated by the floods of 2011.

JOB WELL DONE: Bridgewater's C-grade netball team that defeated Calivil United by nine goals to win the premiership.
