Burpengary’s Moreton Bay Lions AFL Club has won the perpetual Councillors’ Cup over the Redcliffe Tigers for the 10th year in a row at the weekend.
As part of the Cup, which launched in 2010, teams from both clubs - the Moreton Bay Lions in Moreton Bay Regional Council's Division 2, and the Redcliffe Tigers in Division 5 - battle it out for the glory of taking home the trophy.
This year, the Under-17 Girls kicked off proceedings, followed by the Men’s Reserves, then the main match with the Senior Men, with the Under-17 Boys rounding out a day of action at Redcliffe’s home ground at Nathan Rd.
