By Andrew Johnston

LEITCHVILLE-Gunbower's reserves will look to bring a premiership back to the two communities on Saturday, with the Bombers facing off against White Hills in Saturday's Heathcote District Football League reserves grand final.

The Bombers are one of two local teams who will be appearing on the big stage this weekend, with LBU's under 15s netballers taking on Elmore in their age group grand final.

While they are the only sides in grand finals this week, seven sides from the Echuca Football Netball Club will feature in preliminary final action on Sunday, with only the undefeated under 18 side not playing on the day.
