Brothers keen to rewrite records

BROTHERS Aston Villa hopes to begin a new era of women's football after bringing the long-term dominance of reigning premiers Bingera to an end.

Brothers brought the 10-year reign of Bingera to a close in convincing fashion in the preliminary final last weekend with a 3-0 win assuring them of a place in tonight's grand final.

Coach Mal Cooper said the fight was now on to topple Moore Park in the main event and begin a new era for his team.

“We've been down for a while, but we've come a long way this season and I think we've got what it takes to really bring it to them,” he said.

Cooper said an undying passion for the game set his players apart from other teams and expected it to shine through tonight when the grand final gets under way.

“One thing my team has got is guts,” he said.

“They put in 200% all the time, every time and they're fired up and ready for tonight.”

Brothers will take on Moore Park at 8 o'clock tonight at Martens Oval.
