Upper Great Southern Football League returned to the top of the country
football mantle with a 29-point win over the Avon Football Association in the
Landmark Country Championship grand final on Sunday (July 12).
UGSFL’s fifth A-section title in six years, while Avon finished runners-up for
the second consecutive year following last season’s loss to the South West
SWFL couldn’t claim back-to-back titles and will also be relegated to B-section
next year after losing to the Goldfields Football League on Day One of the
championships and being defeated by UGSFL on Day Two.
The Avon Football Association and Upper Great Southern Football League will clash in Sunday's (July 12) Landmark Country Football Championships A-section Grand Final at Medibank Stadium, Leederville, after defeating the Goldfields and South West on Friday.
UGSFL, which has won four of the last five A-section titles, defeated the AFA at Fremantle Oval on Day One of the Landmark Championships 17.7-109 to 11.10-76, despite an
eight goal haul from Avon’s Jermaine Davis.
The other Day One contest saw the Goldfields Football League claim an upset 13.12-90 to 11.17-83 win over reigning champions the South West Football League, who were also beaten by UGS on Day Two and face relegation to B-section for next year's carnival.

Командир помчался на поле боя, а Иванович приказал оператору сворачиваться, и всем немедленно покинуть помещение.
Почти посередине долины там и тут видны какие-то беспорядочные груды.

The Landmark Country Football Championships kicked
off in Perth this week, with the best players from country WA
representing their leagues across three different divisions.
This year’s carnival, which runs from July 9 to 12, is the 35th anniversary Landmark sponsoring the championships and to celebrate the
milestone Merit Awards were presented at the official championship launch on Wednesday night to persons involved in 25 or
more of those years.
Landmark's 35-year sponsorship of the Country Football Championships was recognised at the official launch function this week, with Landmark State manager David Timmel presenting a cheque for $1.355m to the WA Country Football League representing the company's commitment over the last three decades.
WACFL president Terry House was on hand to accept the cheque, while Minister for Sport and Recreation Terry Waldron spoke about the importance and significance of the Landmark Championships and country
football in general.
Goldfields Football League will be aiming to secure a rare A-section Grand
Final appearance after defeating reigning champions South West on the opening
day of the Landmark Country Football Championships on Thursday (July 9).
winning B-section for the last two years, the GFL was promoted to A-section for
this season’s championships and started strongly, taking down the SWFL 13.12-90 to 11.17-83 at Fremantle Oval, with James
Murray booting five goals.
The GFL now meets 2008 A-section
runners-up the Avon Football Association today, where a win will see them book
a place in this Sunday’s Grand Final at Medibank Stadium.
This weeks’ Keystart
Home Loans Match of the Week is the A Grade clash between last years’
promoted clubs, Fremantle CBC and Collegians at Morris Buzzacot Reserve.
Both sides are still in the finals mix following impressive
form throughout the year, Fremantle CBC currently sitting in 3rd
place on 24 points while Collegians are one of the many teams in the log jam on
20 points. So much is riding on the match, finals contention, ladder positions
and even old rivalry from last years’ Grand final but, for once, football takes
a backwards step as Fremantle CBC honour a fantastic clubman.
