YOU can’t take the smile off Tim Holdsworth’s face.
The Bermagui Breakers president is in a state of bliss as the club’s under 13 and senior squads verge on grand final berths with one final hurdle.
Holdsworth the centre play from the senior squad was “pivotal” in knocking off the four-time premiership winning Sea Eagles last week.
“Everything finally clicked,” Holdsworth said.
“It was fantastic, beating Tathra and beating them well ... I don’t even know how to put it in words.”
Phenomenally accurate kicking saw the Breakers land 19 goals and just four behinds to overcome Tathra.
Holdsworth credited the accuracy and marking skills of its big men up front, including coach Brent Ohlin.
“It was a game changer, Brent was leading by example.
“We’ll definitely be looking to the big men on Saturday.”
A loss to Merimbula two weeks ago saw the Breakers in the elimination final against Tathra, and they are now keen to peg one back on the Diggers.
“She’s one-all at the moment, this game against the Diggers will be like a grand final in itself.
“If we win it will be the first grand final for a senior Breakers squad in the club’s history.
“There is a lot riding on it and it does mean a lot to us,” he said.
Holdsworth said he couldn’t be more proud of the efforts from the club this year, with success in both the senior and junior grades.
“It’s a remarkable effort and we’ve had great support from the juniors who are in the same position.
“The kids have been carrying us through tand hey will be playing alongside us on Saturday for a grand final spot.”
The club didn’t take any major injuries in its win over Tathra and the juniors are chuggling along nicely.
When asked if tomorrow’s will be the strongest squad on the field for the year, Holdsworth said: “We’ll be putting what we can on the paddock”.
Holdsworth remained a bit tight-lipped about his ambitions for the season and conceded that no matter what happens, he is proud of what the club has achieved this year.
“Anything can happen in finals football and we’ll see what happens on the day,” he said with a laugh.
“We are proud of the boys, no matter what the outcome.”
Holdsworth urged supporters to head along to the Pambula Sporting Complex to support both the junior and senior squads.
The under 13s Breakers will take the field at 11am, while the main game starts at 2pm.
The club will also hold its junior presentations and best and fairest count on Sunday at the Bermagui Country Club from 11am.
Players, sponsors and supporters are more than welcome to attend.
