AFL Mackay Grand Final Weekend

AFL Grand Finals excitement will take over the Mackay region this Saturday, for AFL Grand Final Day. 

The Great Barrier Reef Arena at Harrup Park will host six grand finals; Under 12s, Under 14s, Under 17s, Reserves, Senior Womens and Senior Mens.

All senior grade matches will be contested between the North Mackay Saints and Mackay City Hawks.

The North Mackay Saints have teams competing in all Grand Finals, bar the Under 12s.

AFL Mackay Regional Manager Alex Brooks said that the footy community was excited to celebrate this weekend.

“It’s been a great year for football in Mackay considering the challenges some of our clubs have had to go through with low player numbers” he said.

“We have seen some exciting football, particularly in this finals series and Grand Final Day will be no different.

“It was great to see a healthy representation from Mackay in both the Men and Women’s NQ Team at the halfway point of the year, it shows we have some serious talent here.

It was an exciting year for two of our clubs with ex-North Mackay player Alana Gee being drafted to the Suns. After she was unfortunately put on the long term injury list, this opened the door for ex-Moranbah Bulldog player Kaylee Kimber who was added to the Suns list. This speaks volumes of the talent here and gives our young players, particularly our girls in the region, some great role models to look up to.

“I would like to thank all the clubs, volunteers, players and presidents involved in the league for their hard work throughout the season. It has been a steep learning curve for myself as a first time Competition Manager and I appreciate all the help and guidance offered along the way.”
