After claiming the Great Flinders Football League A grade premiership for the past three years in a row, it’ll again be a case of who can defeat United Yeelanna come September to steal the title.
With their five outs from the 2016 season covered by five new recruits this year, the Eagles are expected to bring the same class to the field week in and week out.
It’s likely to be the Cummins teams – in the Cougars and Ramblers – who will push them to their limits.

The Magpies are expected to set the paces in the GFFL reserves competition again this year as they reap the benefits of their A grade side welcoming new footballers on top of retaining most of last year’s playing group.
This will see those players on the cusp of league get pushed back down to the B grade, boosting their side.
Spectators will get a taste of what’s in store in round one, on April 22, with Eyre United taking on Cummins Kapinnie, United Yeelanna taking on Tumby Bay, and Ramblers taking on Lock.
