Almost 25 years have passed since the mighty Minyip-Murtoa became the first merged club to win a Wimmera League premiership.
In September 1996, the Burras defeated Stawell Warriors by 40-points at Dimboola to take home the silverware.
The win ignited a period of dominance as Minyip-Murtoa won in 1997 and 1998.
The side was only in its second season of existence after once great rivals Minyip and Murtoa decided to merge ahead of the 1995 season.
According to the Wimmera Mail-Times, Stawell was the 1996 "pre-match fancy" and took a three-point lead into the quarter time break.
However, the Burras piled on eight goals to one in the second quarter, giving them a 41-point lead which they were mostly able to hold onto until the end.
Leigh Funcke stood out for the victors with close to 30 possessions and three goals, earning him the Binns medal for best on the ground.
Port Adelaide 100-gamer John Harvey was in his first year as Burras' coach in 1996 after moving to the area for work and has fond memories of the win.
"It was a fantastic outcome the first year and it was special because we weren't really favourites I don't think," Harvey said.
"I think Stawell was the side to beat really, they lost a few games all year. I think we did our homework a lot better, going into finals."
Harvey said while there was a lot of talent at the club when he arrived, something was missing to go to the next level.
"I don't know I just brought a bit more work ethic and a bit of discipline back into the club really," he said.
"Because some of these players could play, but oh God, like pretty boys, dodge and weave, they want to turn and do this, this, this.
"I said if he dodges and weaves and turns again, get him off the field because people run past for the handball, and a couple of guys are doing all their flashy stuff, which creates a mess down at the forward line.
"And then everyone started doing the team stuff and doing the first gives and all this stuff and oh happy birthday, we just kept winning and winning."
With Harvey taking the field in the final, he also praised the work of his bench coaches in a very "intense" grand final.
"It was all about the structure and the processes of winning the game really, when you're coaching and you're out there as well," he said.
"My bench coaches were terrific, Leigh Tucker and also Laurie Young.
"I was just blessed, and David Delahunty was my runner. All the moons aligned really."
The Warriors would have been quietly confident going into the 1996 decider after a massive win against the Burras in the regular season.
"It was the second or the third last game of the year we played Stawell at Stawell and they beat us by 17 goals," Harvey said.
"Seventeen goals! Don't worry, the players knew about it because that Tuesday night, we ran 17 goal-to-goal at the end of training with 10 pushups and 10 sit-ups at each end.
"We had a full side, and that's when I hurt the toe in the locker room. The problem with the 17 goal loss is that no one got a bloody bruise on them and I kicked the esky and it was full of ice."
When it comes to successful sporting teams, we hear a lot about a club's off-field demeanour as much as their on-field performances.
Although Harvey was only with the Burras for two years, he pointed to the club's culture as something that stood out to him.
"What was really strong about the club which really was good was the committee," he said.
"The people behind the scenes had a real strength about the club, which was tremendous.
"In my lifetime it was a fantastic time those two years around Minyip-Murtoa Football Club and the people as such and the community it was really good and I think that precedent back then is still going today, some of these values that we had which is good."
Although 25-year reunions are commonplace in the sporting world, Harvey was adamant that a catch-up "every ten years is enough".
"Especially some of those guys they know how to drink."
