FAMILY’S GRAND GLORY
Three grand final wins per family
THE Kawana Park Eagles Junior Australian Football Club is celebrating what it believes is a historical first for the club.
Six siblings, from two separate families, have taken home three premiership flags.
Widdicombe brothers Fynn, Noah, and Nedd joined brothers Max, Samuel and Tommy Pekaj to take home the division one premiership cups for the Under-12, Under -14 and Under-16 boys.
It was a monumental day for the Kawana Park Eagles, who were already victorious with the Under-17 girls winning their grand final 36 hours earlier.
U16 premiership coach Doug Stuart said he believed the feat of three wins in three divisions in two families had never been done before.
“To have three brothers win premierships across three divisions is an awesome achievement, let alone six brothers over two families,” Mr Stuart said.
Kawana Park Eagles president Mark Vagg said it was a great reward for a junior football club which focuses on grassroots player development and strong family involvement.
