AHorsham District finals appearance is something that has become a perennial occurrence for the side from Cameron Reserve at the foothills of the northern Grampians.
In recent seasons, Laharum has proven to be a fearsome finals competitor with a never-say-die attitude perhaps fostered from leaner times.
Led by co-coaches Robbie Miller and Todd Heynen, the Demons have been an extremely consistent side during the season and younger players have grown in leaps and bounds, drawing on experience from every game.
Defensively, Laharum has two highly capable key defenders in Brett Ervin and Tom Crawford who can match it with the best opposition forwards in the league.
Angus Martin is also damaging, whether in the ruck or drifting forward to provide an attacking option and can often slip unguarded into the forward 50-metre arc.
The worry for the Demons is they need Martin in both places and are presented with a rob-peter-to-pay-paul scenario.
