TERANG Mortlake is expecting a finals-like crowd and atmosphere for its Super Saturday clash with Koroit this weekend at Terang Recreation Reserve.
Bloods committeeman Craig Kenna said last year’s Super Saturday schedule at Noorat was the biggest home-and-away crowd he saw for the season.
“It was huge, absolutely huge, comparable to a final. Everyone who goes gets plenty of value for money with double the amount of football and netball games,” he said.
“The two senior games of football will be the winless Terang Mortlake taking on Koroit, who are up and about, starting at 2.15pm.”
The senior Warrnambool and district league clash sees boom side Panmure pitted against three-time reigning premier Kolora-Noorat at the Terang ground from noon.
“Each of the four clubs involved have big followings so with half decent weather there should be a bumper crowd,” Kenna said.
“Last year’s Super Saturday game at Noorat was as big a home-and-away game crowd as I’ve seen at Noorat. It was compared by quite a few people to an old Mount Noorat league grand final crowd.”
Kenna said it was difficult to estimate the potential size of the crowd at Terang Recreation Reserve.
Lead-up junior and reserves games will be contested at Noorat Recreation Reserve.
“It’s going to be a pretty big day. The perfect weather made all the difference last year,” Kenna said.
“Normal Hampden league entry prices of $10 will be charged, with memberships crossing over for Kolora-Noorat and Koroit members.”
Kenna said all Super Saturday netball games were scheduled to be held in Terang.
One possible obstacle has been the possible lack of numbers for Panmure in the under 17s football but the Hampden league clubs are understood to have committed to help out if required.
Noorat Recreation Reserve actions kicks off at 8.30am, with the Kolora-Noorat under 12s taking on Panmure, the same sides play an under 14½ game from 9.20am before Kolora-Noorat meets Panmure in the reserves at 10.45am. They will be followed by the Hampden league reserves match between Terang Mortlake and Koroit at 12.30pm.
At Terang Recreation Reserve the actions starts at 8.30am with the Power under 17s playing Panmure, followed by the Bloods under 18s taking on Koroit at 10.15am.
The senior WDFNL clash between the Power and Panmure is scheduled to start at noon, followed by Terang Mortlake playing Koroit at 2.15pm.
All the netball is being played at the two Terang courts, with games starting at 9am. The main games will be staggered, with the Terang Mortlake game against Koroit starting at 1pm and Kolora-Noorat meeting Panmure at 2.15pm.
There will also be an Auskick game between Terang Mortlake and Kolora-Noorat at half-time of the senior Hampden league football game.
