Swifts may have gotten the better of Taylors Lake on the football field and netball court on Saturday, but both clubs came together as one to celebrate their annual Indigenous round.
Sonny and John Secombe led a pre-game dance before the senior contest, sharing their culture with those in attendance.
Both teams donned specially designed guernseys with Indigenous designs, while Swifts flew Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island flags as well as painting the Indigenous flag on the ground.
Sonny Secombe said it was great to see the occasion embraced for another year.
"Both clubs really look forward to it, regardless of the result either way," he said.
"The community really gets involved and it adds that element of culture. It is great to put it in that sporting context and it's a great achievement by the clubs who have taken the initiative to set the footprint for the league."
Swifts coach Scott Carey said it was special to be part of the occasion once again.
"The two clubs have worked hard to keep driving it for four years now, it is a credit to everyone involved who makes it happen," he said.
"We, just like Taylors Lake, have had a lot of great aboriginal clubmen and it is great to show some appreciation back with a day like this."
