Clinical, effortless, dominant…

Just some of the words that describe Balwyn Football Club’s premiership winning performance in Saturday’s Division 1 EFL grand final. The Tigers were never challenged in the one-sided affair, running out as 111 point winners over a Norwood side that had no answers. The club has now won three of the past four grand finals – a huge feat. The Reserves also took out the major prize, winning by only 4 points.

CASH group CEO, Dick Menting, and senior manager, Nick Coker, were on hand at Bayswater oval to cheer on the Tigers. The club has a partnership with the Canterbury, Ashburton, Surrey Hills and Balwyn Community Bank® branches going back many years.
