Two heavy-weights of the EDFL square off in an enthralling battle in the lead-up to the 2015 Finals Series.
Aberfeldie vs Keilor
For decades Aberfeldie and Keilor have faced off in many classic encounters. Aberfeldie Captain Josh Cubillo knows all about the feeling between the two clubs.
“One of the first things you learn about when you come to Aberfeldie is the fierce rivalry between us and Keilor.”
This clash had special signifigance for Brock McLean who represented both Aberfeldie and Keilor as a junior player.
“It ignites passion. It ignites fire in the belly.”
Top of the Table Clash
Top of the table Aberfeldie have gone through the season undefeated, whilst third placed Keilor are on fire with eight consecutive wins.
Former Collingwood Premiership player and now Keilor coach Mick McGuane has a lot of respect for the opposition. He also knows all too well that it is performing finals time that matters most.
“The intensity of the game will be pretty fierce,” said McGuane.
“We understand that we’re coming up against an outstanding footy team. They haven’t lost a game until this point of the year. But as we always say, you don’t win Premierships by Round 17.”
It’s a big day at Clifton Park with a number of AFL names in action, including former Melbourne and Carlton star Brock Mclean, former bomber Kyle Reimers, and Tiger Angus Graham.
With a passionate crowd of both Aberfeldie and Keilor fans at Clifton Park, the stage is set for another classic clash – Aberfeldie vs Keilor.
