HOLBROOK will celebrate its finest moment since joining the Hume league in 1999 this weekend.

The club is holding a 10-year reunion for its 2004 premiership side.

After losing the 2001 and 2003 premiership deciders as favourites, Holbrook finally exorcised its grand final demons to capture its sole flag since crossing from the Tallangatta league.

The Brookers were coached by triple Albury premiership player Marc Duryea with Tigers’ premiership teammate Martin Semmler captain.

The Brookers trailed by 29 points early in the second quarter and history suggested the club may once again buckle under pressure. But led by Duryea in the centre, the Brookers piled on the next five goals to hit the lead at the 25-minute mark.
