THE Kyabram Bombers are GVL premiers for 2017 and this time last year, there weren’t too many experts that thought otherwise.
They now sit on 42 wins in a row and the Paul Newman dynasty doesn’t look like stopping. What this creates at Kyabram is more people wanting to be involved and players wanting to keep the ball rolling and work towards a hat-trick.
The senior side has stars on every line and with the reserves being premiers also and the under 18s grand finalists, the club is arguably in a stronger position than a club in the Goulburn Valley has ever been.
You have to give it to the town and community of Kyabram. The football club more often than not is a reflection of the people and relationships within the community and to have this type of success does say a lot about its town and people.
The president, Peter Croxford, his committee and helpers, the coach, Paul Newman and his assistants and of course the players deserve every accolade that comes their way and I’m sure there will be some sore heads this week after the celebrations subside.
Some say dominance like this is not great for any competition but it’s now up to the other towns and clubs to lift the bar and challenge everything Kyabram is. Time will tell but the mighty Bombers are my pick for the 2018 flag.
