Best country league in the state

The Great Southern Football League for the third consecutive year gave the Southern Football League a football lesson, by winning the inaugural Barry Pilmore Cup by 51 points.

The Great Southern boys maintained its reputation as the best country league in South Australia by leading at every change, although at half time the match was anybody's.

The margin was only nine points in favour of Great Southern. 

Great Southern were brilliantly led by skipper Simon Munn, who was also the winner of the Kevin Curran Medal for best on ground.

Association specialist Mitch Portlock helped Munn control the stoppages and Matthew Hodge was at his scintillating best around the goals or running rampant around the ground.

Other Great Southern players to do well in the total team effort were Scott Hunt, Tom Derham, Marcus Burdett, Matt Wilson and the surprise packet, Jake Ashton-Place.

Southern, which has so many teams to choose from, had valuable support from Minns, Crate, Mott, Farrier, Brown and Mahony.
