Three Valleys teams make it into grand final

AS A club it is marked as a success to deliver just one team into a grand final.

For Valleys, the success of 2013 is much more than that, with the club represented in each of the A grade, reserves and under 18s grand final matches.

It repeats the club's ability last year, having been in both of the top grades' major fixtures, only this time Valleys president Keiran Lawler is hoping for a different result.

"We are just happy that we have all three grades; we had two last year and lost both but they say you have to lose one to win one," Lawler said.

After Calliope and Wallabys had been dominant all year, the last month of competition showed that Valleys would demand attention come finals time, and the team has done just that.

The A grade side could have easily been down and out early in the semi-final win against Calliope, but dug deep to make the grand final.

"It was 12-0 to them after 10 minutes and our boys stuck to the game plan and came out on top," Lawler said.

The Roosters can be disappointed with the loss. After proving to be a more than capable side, a lack of consistency over the past six weeks has spelled an end to their season.

As for Valleys any grand final win will be an improvement on last year and move the club in the right direction for 2014.

"Congratulations to all three of our sides and hopefully we can come out on top," Lawler said.

The grand finals will be played at Marley Brown on Saturday, August 31.
