VAFA Premier B – Old Brighton v Fitzroy: Silver linings

Fitzroy travelled to the beach suburb of Brighton to take on the Old Boys, the form side of Premier B, down there. A close contest until three quarter time, the game slipped away from the Roys in the end. But there was much to take from the performance and the prospects for the season remain good. Nick Marshall tells the story.
