Norths had players representing with other clubs during the year. Amber Evans played with Falcons in the U16 Girls final. Sadly they lost to Wodonga. Match reports indicate that Amber played well.
In the U16 Boys, Scots had two Norths players – Oscar Smart and Kurt Beath playing for them. Scots managed a strong win in the final, with Oscar scoring 4 goals in the 5-0 victory. Oscar was awarded the U16 Boys Best & Fairest, sharing it with Brandon Lowe. Kurt is the Scots U16 Boys Best and Fairest for the year. Congratulations to both these players and to the Scots team on a solid victory:

The match report from Sharyn Tolley:
Unfortunately CW went down 3-0 in our Grandfinal today. We played a great game but were outclassed by a better team on the day.
No BOGS everyone contributed. Bad luck to Duckie Donna Hemann who was felled by sniper fire in the dying moments of the game. In the process of replacing her on the field Maddog Cate Melville decided to focus all attention on her by taking a hit to the head. Fortunately she sucked it up and played out the game. Duckie has approximately 185 days to repair her hammy😱.
A great effort to even get to the finals.
The Div 3 Men came away with a big win on Saturday to be Premiers, defeating United 1-0 in extra time. Congratulations to Luke Pontt – Best on Ground.
Here are the boys in all their glory:
