Heathcote District FNLMatch Preview | Heathcote or Mount Pleasant will be the Heathcote DFNL senior footy premiers of ’23 after Saturday’s grand final showdown at Huntly’s Strauch Reserve.

The neighbouring clubs and fierce rivals are aiming to break a premiership drought, but also mark a return to the top after some lean years when they clash from 2.20pm.

At selection Mount Pleasant sprung a surprise by naming gun forward and co-coach Ben Weightman in its line-up.

A back injury has kept Weightman on the sidelines as Mounts fought its way from an elimination final.

As Weightman was included, Nick Edwards went out of the line-up which beat White Hills in last Saturday’s preliminary final by four points.

A Blues team jointly coached by brilliant on-baller Adam Baird and Weightman put Leitchville Gunbower, North Bendigo and then White Hills out of the premiership race.
