Heads Up – 9 March 2018

by Team BV

We want your Pennant stories

Has your club done something great in Pennant this season? We want to know about it.

Heads Up will feature pictures of flag winners, plus some of the better stories and mainstream media coverage of Pennant finals from all around Victoria – regional and metro – in our State of Pennant series in coming weeks.

Already there have been two great club stories in Strathmore, who qualified all 10 of their club’s teams for Pennant finals, and Bentleigh, who will have nine of a possible 10 sides chasing a flag.

Read all about them, and find out how to get your club included in our State of Pennant features, by clicking on the Find out more button below.
