MYRTLEFORD co-coach Jayden Vescio believes the 2016 Savoys are a better side than last year’s cup finalists and can go one step further and claim the club’s first title.
The Savoys start another cup campaign this weekend having secured second place with a 2-1 win over arch-rivals Wangaratta in the final round of the regular season.
Their first post-season contest is a quarter final match-up with Melrose, the team the Savoys beat to advance to last year’s decider and have split wins with this season.
Having met their first goal of finishing higher than 2015 Vescio is now confident the Savoys can go all the way.
“We had a few departures from last year, we lost some experience and then copped some injuries at the start of the year and through the middle so to finish second just three points behind Cobram exceeded expectations,” he said.
“This year’s side might not have the names that we had last year but the group is so much closer and they just keep delivering.”
