Bardon Latrobe’s Senior Mens and Reserve Team won the Reserves and First Team Grand Finals over Mooroondu Football Club 2 – 1 on Saturday. Not only is it their first Capital League double in 34 years but it comes after only re-entering the mens senior competition in 2011.
After battling it out at the bottom of the ladder in Capital Four in recent years, the club earned promotion into Capital Three in 2016.
The team is said to have one of the best cultures in Brisbane football as it attracts large amounts of newcomers every year wanting to join the club. Under the direction of their new coach David Bounds, the team trained intensely two nights a week which saw them secure their victory in Saturday’s Grand Final.
The team is currently taking a short and well deserved break but will be re-entering their intense training routine in October as they don’t plan to rest on their laurels in Capital Three.
