VFA Grand Final- looking back 1976 to 1980 1st Division 1976 Port Melbourne19.18.132 d Dandenong 10.15.75 Infamous Grand Final. Very fiery and tough with the borough prevailing.

Another fiery encounter with the two blues emerging. A young Wayne Johnston goes on to play a few premierships with Carlton. 1979 Coburg 16.15.11 d Geelong West 14.19.103 Fisher of Coburg chases his own kick to kick a goal and seal the burgers first flag for 51 years. 1980 Port Melbourne11.15.81 d Coburg 10.10.70 Port Melbourne comes back from the dead to play all over Coburg and win the flag. 2nd Division 1976 Williamstown 19.13.127 d Mordialloc 9.16.70 Williamstown thrashed hot flag favourite Mordialloc in a tough match.

I still shudder at he thought of the 1977 Grand Final....what a terrible day for Sandy.... Had to wait 27 years to exact revenge...and was worth the wait!

Sandy. The most successful club in the past 30 years

1977 what a beautiful day it was a special day it was know as the VFA and it was an even 100
The 1980 game being down for 3 quaters and getting a home after playing 1 quater of football,but 77 its just as bruce would would say its so SPECIAL?????
