GLENGARRY thirds claimed its first premiership title in 17 seasons with a crushing 27-point victory against Traralgon Tyers United on Saturday.

The match was an arm wrestle until the Magpies staged their attack with a four-goal third term proving the difference.

Led by captain Jake Read, the Magpies built a handy buffer but it was tested late by the Bombers.

TTU mounted a final term comeback which saw them draw to within two goals in the latter stages of the stanza.

However, the rally fell short as Lachlan Gilroy and Corey Rogers proved too big a handful in front of goals as Glengarry won 12.12 (84) to 8.9 (57).

The premiership Magpies received their medallions and cup from former AFL player Geelong’s Hamish McIntosh.

Glengarry captain Read capped off a stellar personal season, adding the best on field medallion to the league best and fairest.
