ALTHOUGH figures are yet to be finalised, the SFNL grand final had one of its biggest crowds to date, according to organisers.

Local police said despite the large crowd that packed through the City Oval gates on Saturday, and later went to the CBD for post-game celebrations, patrons were well behaved.

Ouyen United fans returning south were also orderly, according to reports.

“It was a large crowd and no incidents,” Leading Senior Constable Cameron McRae of Ouyen police station said.
