IRYMPLE claimed a rare double when the club triumphed in both the Sunray­sia Football and Netball League senior football and A Grade netball grand finals on Saturday.

Captain Brad Eaton, pictured top with the Sunraysia Daily premiership cup, finished a stellar career at the Swallows with a nail-biting seven-point victory over Ouyen United, while the netballers took home the A Grade flag in an equally thrilling one-goal margin over a gallant South Mildura.

Led by best-on-ground Nick Mee, Irymple had a lead of 24 points at the main break and held off a late charge by the Kangas to win their first senior football premiership since 2011.
