SCORESBY will be out to achieve one of the toughest tasks in football when it takes to Bayswater Oval in the Eastern Football League division 1 under-19s grand final on Saturday.
The Magpies will be out to win back-to-back premierships and will have to do so against Lilydale, a side with just as much finals experience following their division 2 premiership last season.
This is the first season of under-19s football following the EFL's decision to change from an under-18s competition last year.
Magpies coach Sean Kavanagh said his side had a full list for the clash against the Falcons. "This grand final will probably be tougher than our premiership last year," he said. "These two sides know each other so well and the boys are really excited about the match and are looking forward to the weekend."
The Magpies hold a slim edge over the Falcons going into the grand final, having won two of their three matches this season.
But Kavanagh said all previous form and achievements would be thrown out the window when the game starts on Saturday.
"Ladder position doesn't mean anything in the long run," he said. "Our speed is something we work a lot on and winning the contested footy is also a strength of ours. But both sides have dangerous forwards so whoever can win the ball out of the middle will have an advantage."
