A SEASON that was filled with promise for Natimuk ended with a heavy defeat at the hands of Kalkee on Saturday.
The Kees were far too good for the Rams in the wet and cruised to a 131-9 win and a week off as minor premiers.
Josh Beddison booted five goals to finish the home and away season with 89 a total second only to Laharum's Shannon Argall, who booted 106.
Aaron Barnett kicked four, while Tim Pickert and Adam Carter finished with three apiece.
Veteran leaders Simon Hobbs and Steve Schultz were the Kees' best.
Natimuk coach Dylan Wright announced he would resign from the position after the game and was fittingly named the team's best player.
He said he was keen to try his hand with VFL side North Ballarat next year after rehabbing his reconstructed knee throughout the year.
Wright said he was leaving the club on good terms and was keen to return if possible.
"I'm putting the footy club down as my second club if I'm allowed to and I don't have to play with Redan or at East Point in Ballarat," he said.
"Being 24 when I signed and turning 25 during the season, I've got a lot to learn as a player, a person and as a coach but I've loved the opportunity and the experience."
