The decision to pursue – and ultimately recruit – Andy McKay from Bacchus Marsh all those years ago has proved a masterstroke from those at Hepburn.
Andy picked up his fourth Central Highlands Football League senior premiership medal on Saturday afternoon, with his twin brothers Brad and Mitch winning their second.
Brad and Mitch followed Andy and joined the Burras when their junior careers ended with the Cobras.
“The team, they’ve gelled together well and it has just been fantastic. I’m so excited – another premiership,” said the mother Jill.
Ms McKay wound back her memory to when Hepburn first became aware of Andy, which was during a practice match against the Burras while playing for Bacchus Marsh. “(Coach Jason Olver) said the best thing he ever did was recruiting Andy. And then he got the other two.”
