THE Coffs Harbour Breakers senior men have capped off a stellar home and away season by winning the AFL North Coast minor premiership after a dominant win against the Sawtell/Toormina Saints.

The Breakers finished as minor premiers in all four senior competitions, finishing on top of the ladder in the senior men’s, reserves, women’s, and under 17s – for the first time in AFL North Coast history.

The four Breakers teams earned automatic entry into their respective grand finals to be played on Saturday, 3 September at Ce.x Coffs International Stadium.

Breakers President Jay Guthrie said it was a great achievement for the club to win all four minor premierships.

“It’s been a great year, and it’s really been about building the club over the last four or five years,” he said.

“It’s just about the process, and it’s paid off with four minor premierships.

“We went into the final round still needing three, and we got them all which made it a great day for us.

“It’s a great moment for the Breakers as winning all four is definitely not an easy feat.”

The Breakers senior men finished their home and away season in dominant fashion beating the Sawtell/Toormina Saints by 66 points in the final round at Richardson Park.

The Breakers now await the winner of this weekend’s preliminary final between the Grafton Tigers and Port Macquarie Magpies.

It headlines a big day of preliminary final action with grand final spots up for grabs on Saturday at the Ce.x Coffs International Stadium.

The Nambucca Valley Lions and Casino Lions play off in the reserves, the Northern Beaches Blues take on the Port Macquarie Magpies in the women, and the Port Macquarie Magpies and Sawtell/Toormina Saints face off in the under 17s.

The AFL North Coast junior grand finals are also set to be decided this Sunday at the Ce.x Coffs International Stadium.

The junior grand finals feature Port Macquarie Flyers v Port Macquarie Swoopers (Under 11s), Bellingen Bulldogs v Coffs Harbour Breakers (Under 14 Youth Girls), Nambucca Valley Lions v Port Macquarie Magpies (Under 13s), Bellingen Bulldogs v Sawtell/Toormina Saints (Under 17 Youth Girls), and Nambucca Valley Lions v Port Macquarie Swoopers (Under 15s).
