Violet Town will be drawing on some experience from the club’s last premiership in this Saturday’s grand final.

Violet Town will be drawing on some experience from the club’s last premiership in this Saturday’s grand final.

The Towners last tasted glory in the Kyabram District Football League in 2012, with that all-conquering team powering through the season undefeated to the flag.

Coach Sean Horsburgh, brother Pat Horsburgh, Tim Ross and Nick Abley are the only players still there from five years ago when Violet Town belted Undera by 76 points.

Bo Harrison, who played more than 300 games for Violet Town, will be on the opposing side this time around after crossing to Nagambie last year.

‘‘There’s a few of us who have been there before and experienced it,’’ Sean Horsburgh said.

‘‘Sam Poole as well played in a flag at (Shepparton) United, and there’s a few other wise heads with some finals experience, so we’ll just try to keep it as normal as possible during the week.’’

Nagambie will be no easy task, with the Lakers gunning for a third premiership in four seasons.

They are filled with experienced campaigners and Linc Sullivan will have his side primed and ready after a week off.

‘‘We know our best football is good enough to beat anyone,’’ Horsburgh said.

‘‘Nagambie has plenty of finals experience, but we’re confident we’ll be ready to go and we’ll be mentally prepared for the contest.’’

Violet Town comfortably defeated the Lakers in two games during the season, but Nagambie got the Towners by 16 points in the second semi-final.
