WEDDERBURN may need to create plenty of extra room in its trophy cabinet following Saturday’s North Central league grand final day at Boort.

Of the 13 premierships that are up for grabs across the football, netball and hockey grades, the Redbacks have the chance to win nine of them.

All six of the Redbacks’ netball teams are in grand finals, while they will also contest the reserves football and both the men’s and women’s hockey deciders.

Seven of the league’s eight clubs will be represented in grand finals by multiple teams, with only Charlton not having a team playing.

Wedderburn – 9 teams

Birchip-Watchem – 5

St Arnaud – 

Wyche-Narraport – 3

Boort – 2

Donald – 2

Sea Lake Nandaly – 2

Grand final day action gets under way at 9.30am with the under-13 football and 13-under netball.
