How high can Parrots fly?

WITH four rounds of home and away matches to go anticipation is rising that Leongatha’s resurgence this season will result in a premiership.
Of the three teams sitting at the top of the ladder, Maffra, Leongatha and Traralgon, the Parrots have the easiest run to the end of the season with bottom placed Warragul this weekend (home), second from the bottom Moe (away), Drouin seventh (away) and Morwell sixth (home).
Traralgon and Maffra will fight out a blockbuster on August 15.
Whatever the outcome of its football team’s season, Leongatha will be proud of the club which in appointing Beau Vernon as its coach demonstrates that football is about community.
It is this kind of solidarity which has fuelled the team’s resurgence.
To assist Vernon as coach to stay warm and gain an overview of the match in progress, the old time keepers’ box has been refurbished and fitted with a ramp enabling Vernon to get up and down unaided. “It is great to be able to watch from up there, being able to watch the play unfold more easily,” Vernon said.
“The club has been awesome making this provision.”
Vernon says that a look at the ladder makes Leongatha’s run home look a little easier than the other top teams “but we have to keep improving and working hard.
“Finals football is a different environment to home and away football; there is more pressure, more riding on it.”
Mr Vernon said there is a good feeling around the club with the days growing longer.
“Everyone is getting excited.
“We’ll keep going on as we have been going with normal training.
Unlike last year without a team in the finals, 2015 looks certain to see the first, second and third teams all playing finals football.
To top that off with even more icing on the cake the A, B and C Grade netball teams will play in the finals.

Commitment: the new coach’s box with its viewing platform is proving an asset to the club’s fortunes.
