Singleton Greyhounds first grade coach and club president Jye Bayley couldn't help but add to the tributes throughout the main break of his under-18 side's 44-10 grand final win over Aberdeen.
His passionate compliments would help fuel the side to build on their already dominant 20-4 lead with many players auditioning for his first grade side ahead of the 2020 season.
"I'm really proud of Higgo (under-18 coach Daniel Higgins) and the boys because they definitely deserved to win today (and) they've worked hard over the past couple of years," Bayley told the Singleton Argus.
"You could see how excited they were to get that win.
After falling short in an upset grand final defeat to Scone key contributors such as premiership captain Brendon Chalker will now train under the watchful of Bayley assuming he continues his coaching role for a fourth year.
"I'm really excited to see these boys come through to grade," Bayley added.
"This team that played today hold the key to our success in grade footy."
